Bumble without Facebook
Because of its unique functionality, Bumble is fast gaining ground on Tinder. It draws more female users by allowing women to initiate chats. As a result, more male users join, forcing everyone to step up their game. This speaks to me as someone who has always prioritized quality above quantity.
Bumble, like Tinder, uses Facebook to create your profile. Bumble, like Tinder, is a taker rather than a giver, so it won’t notify your Facebook friends that you’re using the app or post anything to Facebook while you’re using it.
Does Bumble filter Facebook friends?
The chance of seeing friends, colleagues, or coworkers on these Facebook-based apps is the only drawback. Alternatively, they could see you. The original query was whether or not Bumble filters or excludes Facebook friends, and the answer is that we have no idea. To find out, I conducted several experiments with a group of pals.
I shared 13 friends with the friend with whom I conducted this experiment. It only showed up in 7 of our profiles. Another friend and I shared 42 mutual acquaintances, the majority of whom were from college, but only 27 of them were visible in Bumble. While this is a relatively small study, it does suggest that some sort of filtering or exclusion occurs. Either that, or Bumble’s extrapolation of Facebook friend data is flawed.
Your name, username, email address, phone number, gender, date of birth, sexual preference, photos, location, and login information will be collected, according to Bumble. It will also have access to your friends lists and data from other social media accounts you have linked to Facebook, such as Instagram and others. It states it will only publish what it needs to share publicly, but it doesn’t say anything about filtering, exclusions, or how Bumble works.
Bumble without Facebook
There’s good news if ‘bumping into’ mutual friends or acquaintances on Bumble makes you nervous. Bumble has given a way to establish a profile without needing Facebook since April 2018. Instead of linking the two accounts, you’ll be able to log in and establish an account with just your phone number.
This is in response to individuals avoiding Facebook and being properly concerned about the information they share there. Thousands of people have closed their Facebook accounts as a result of recent data-sharing scandals and the way Facebook interferes with daily life. Bumble doesn’t want this to affect their membership, so they’ve created a way for people to use the dating app without having to use Facebook.
“Many of our customers and prospective users have asked for an option to signup for Bumble without attaching their Facebook account,” Jessica Collins, product marketing manager at Bumble, said in a statement on April 16, 2018. “We’re eager to expand globally to new communities while maintaining the Bumble experience that our users know and love,” says the company.
This is fantastic news for everyone who uses Bumble and wants to keep their personal and professional lives separate. Bumble did use Facebook to help with registration and identity verification. Selecting the ‘Sign in with Facebook’ option and letting the app handle the rest was always the easier option. We had no idea how dangerous that would be. We now know not to use Facebook to log into anything that uses it, thanks to Cambridge Analytica.
Do it yourself
Now that you can sign up for Bumble using your phone number, it’s a no-brainer to do so. Existing Bumble users may want to update their profiles, and new users will almost certainly want to utilize the phone instead of Facebook. It does mean you’ll have to create and submit your own profile and photographs, but it also means you’ll have complete control over who sees what and when.
