Bumble isn’t releasing figures on its active user base, but after passing the 500,000 mark two or three months ago, it has been growing at a week-over-week clip of as much as 15 percent.There’s good reason to be skeptical of Facebook when it comes to privacy, but the Facebook Messenger app isn’t the privacy nightmare that some people think it is. That’s the promise from Bumble, an 8-month-old app that’s adding a new algorithm to grade users on metrics like engagement and, well, whether they’re demanding to see you naked.To earn a “VIBee” badge on Bumble, male and female users alike must establish a track record of having real conversations with other users, says Whitney Wolfe, Bumble’s founder and CEO.
Although the Messenger app is available for Android, i OS, Windows Phone and Black Berry, the main source of user angst comes from the lengthy list of app permissions you have to approve before you can download the Android app from Google Play.Already, Bumble has established itself as an unworkable venue for guys accustomed to carpet-bombing women with “Hey baby” and “Nice (body part)” messages.That’s because Wolfe — a co-founder of Tinder, a notorious haven for such annoyances — has insisted that on Bumble, only women can initiate male-female conversations.So it could be argued that Facebook is the victim of Google’s decision in June 2014 to lump related permissions together and simplify their descriptions.
In this case at least, the Zuckerbergers don’t deserve the Big Brother accusations being lobbed their way – but they might have avoided a lot of pain if they had spelled things out for users better.Among the permissions the app requires are several that have given users reason to complain – when you install the Android app, you have to grant access to your device’s contacts, microphone, stored photos, videos, SMS messages, location, and more.
