Whitney Wolfe Takes On Match Group

Bumble is the champion when it comes to the dating app world, and everyone always goes for the champion. This is what Whitney Wolfe believes is happening when it comes to her dating app. The parent company of Tinder which is called the Match group has filed a lawsuit against Bumble. There has been a lawsuit filed where this company is claiming that the technology dating interface that is used for Bumble is an exact replica of what Tinder is doing.

Whitney Wolfe believes that this idea is absurd and that this parent company for Tinder is a bully that is trying to cut in on profits that she has made.

Bumble has been around for some time now, and there has been no lawsuit in place. Now that Whitney Wolfe is rising to the top as a billion dollar app it appears that everyone wants a piece of the action. Match has already tried to buy Bumble for more than $400 million. It appears that now that Whitney Wolfe has turned down this offer there is a whole lot more tension between Whitney Wolfe and the founders of Tinder.

Whitney Wolfe has been silent about the lawsuit where she sued one of the owners of the Tinder app because she was once someone that helped create this app. This is why she believes that it is totally ludicrous for anyone to put a lawsuit in place against her. She feels that she has the right to get into a similar swipe left or right format for her app because she was the one that co-created Tinder.

Whitney Wolfe does not plan to let any lawsuit stop her from expanding the business that she created. She has already been able to build a stronger network with Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz. She has taken to building the type of app environment that allows people to engage in even more than just dating.

Whitney Wolfe feels like this type of expansion automatically clears Bumble from being just another dating app. She feels that Tinder has no real grounds to stand when it comes to the comparison between Tinder and Bumble because Bumble is more than a dating app. CEO of Bumble, Whitney Wolfe is not going to be intimidated by this because she knows that she is creating something that is unlike anything else that has existed when it comes to social media apps.
