This is typically the way that things go for app developers. There is how apps that are hot one moment are getting overshadowed by another company the next.
It goes without saying that there is a large amount of competition when it comes to dating apps, but Whitney Wolfe is not scared of the competition. She feels that she is creating her own path, and she is in her own lane when it comes to the user base that she has. Women that have connected with Bumble are more confident about the possibility of finding the right match. This may have much to do with the fact that this is a dating app that is verified through Facebook.
People that sign up for Bumble have to meet certain requirements like having a certain amount of friends. This is just a better way to filter down on the amount of spam users that create fake accounts.

This is one of the things that actually separates her app from the app that she co-founded before Bumble. Now that she is in charge with Bumble she is able to practically eliminate all of the fake accounts that still plague dating apps like Tinder today.

It appears that even more people are learning about the efficiency of Bumble, and this gives Whitney Wolfe even more reasons to embrace the standards that she has put in place.
