Just when we thought dating apps couldn’t get any better! Bumble, a familiar dating app, is offering a new feature called VIBee. This feature allows users to be identified on their profile as a VIBee users, giving them a whole new database of users to swipe away at. In order to get this feature, a request has to be sent from your account to Bumble, users have to have been active on the Bumble platform in order to get access to this new feature. The application uses an algorithm to determine if a user is active enough on the application to be accepted as an exclusive VIBee. Once a VIBee member users have an exclusive database that they are able to browse through. This feature advertises the chances of a real connection are much higher as the “time wasters” have been removed from the database that a VIBee user would swipe through.
What do you guy’s think of this new “exclusive” feature offered by Bumble, and could this new VIBee tag lead to users being judged for such active participation on these dating apps?
