Dating comes after you find the other interested partner. For you to find them, you have to network with them first. Bumble is a dating application where women approach the men first. The women using the platform can send the first message after they make a successful connection. The application is now launching a new service known as Bumble Bizz. The new service will enable the users to find career contacts.
Bumble Bizz is the third service that the company is launching. Apart, from the dating service, it has another service for finding friends known as the Bumble BFF. You can find all the three services on its app, and you can toggle between the three services.
There are times where you have an invitation to career networking event but do not have the mood to attend them. The new service, Bumble Bizz, will allow you to meet other members, virtually of course. In such a case, all the people who were to attend the event can network on the application and exchange contacts. Once they make a successful connection, they can chat on the application, and if need be they can plan how to meet physically.
The app incorporated another amazing feature. It allows the user only to view the contacts who are near to them. It is because it is easier to set up a meeting with those people who are near you. The founder of the application, Whitney Wolfe Herd says the objective behind the application is providing a safe space that women need when career networking. The idea of providing women with a safe space is great. However, the women can also lose out. It is because they are men out there who just want to connect with the women just because of the careers and nothing else. The women can turn down the requests losing out any career benefits they would have obtained from networking with these men.
The need arises from the lack of such a space in other networking applications, for example, LinkedIn. There are many cases of solicitation on the applications. They include inappropriate sexual comments on their posts which can make women uncomfortable.
