TEXAS MONTHLY - Mar 14 - Bumble now has ~12.5M registered users. Bumble founder, Whitney Wolfe, says she wants the app to be a "hub of connections." She wants women to be in control of all the relationships they build, whether they be romantic (Bumble), platonic (friend-finding Bumble BFF) or professional (the-soon-to-be-released Bumble Biz). Wolfe aims for Bumble to be the inverse of Facebook. "Facebook is good at connecting you to people you know. We want to connect you to people you don't know." Wolfe also wants to expand from digital to physical spaces by opening a number of "social hives," physical locations where Bumble users can meet.
