Dating can be difficult but so can finding good friends. It can be hard to make the connection that results in a genuine friendship. This is why Whitney Wolfe created an app for women in addition to founding Bumble. She realized an app could be used for making friends in addition to dating and BFF was born. Bumble BFF is located within the Bumble app used for dating and is easy to use. You begin by logging in and creating a basic profile. All you need to do is list a few important traits and interests. Then you switch over to the mode for Bumble BFF and select your search area.
Once Whitney Wolfe’s Bumble BFF app provides you with results you can choose to either save or delete them individually. Since the app effectively disables your dating algorithm you don’t have to be concerned about a romantic connection appearing. The system is color coded so when you see green you know you are in Bumble BFF and yellow is the color for the dating algorithm. You will appear in the potential friends list for other users and when you like someone’s profile and they in turn like yours you receive a notification you have a possible match. You or your match have 24 hours to send a message before the match will disappear. If you decide this friendship may work you have the option of setting up a meeting or exchanging phone numbers.
