Happy Bee-Day Bumble!
Year two has been huge for Bumble!
We launched Bumble BFF at SXSW, partnered with Spotify to make your matches more harmonious, introduced Bumble Boost, and brought Bumble to Android.
However, we're not just celebrating our second birthday because we have a tendency to over-celebrate. (Or because we want an excuse to pop champagne and eat cake for lunch.) We're celebrating our second birthday because it marks an important milestone in a social movement: women making the first move.
Everyday (yes, everyday!) we receive emails full of stories about how Bumble has changed our users' lives. Knowing we've connected you with a best friend and/or soulmate - the person you now know you can't live without - is beyond rewarding. Knowing we've given you the confidence and courage to make the first move in all areas of your life is indescribably powerful to every member of our team.
Bumble isn't just swiping to connect with new friends, dates, or colleagues. Bumble is a social movement, a lifestyle, a state of mind. We're aiming to change the way women view themselves, the world, and their place in it.
Our second birthday is a time of reflection upon and celebration of women making the first move. We are so grateful for each and every one of our users. You're the biggest and best part of the lifestyle of kindness, positivity, respect, and empowerment we hope to spread.
We can't wait to see what the next year holds! (And the year after that, and the year after that!) These past fun, wild, and amazing two years make us believe what's in store for all of us is something even better, and it's all because of you! We love you honey! Thanks for making these years the best of our lives.
