Cuts Ties With Facebook
When Whitney started Bumble, she developed close ties with social media giant, Facebook. For one to become a member, they had to have a Facebook account. That is not the case now. Following recent reports that Facebook failed to protect clients’ data agitated Wolfe thus cut ties with Facebook.
