Bumble – yes, the dating app – has a new magazine out, and the internet dating world is abuzz with intrigue.
Bumble Bizz is Bumble’s career-focused platform, joining Bumble Date and Bumble BFF in helping to empower women to network fervently, take control of their love lives and join forces, respectively.
For those of you who aren't familiar with the service, on Bumble, women are in control—they have to make the first move (messaging first within the first 24 hours or else the opportunity is gone) upon swiping right.
The app – boasts over 50 million users worldwide – has now branched into print in conjunction with Hearst Magazines. Their newest project promises to deliver "real-talk from experts, in-depth features, trend pieces on hot topics, answers to burning questions posed by our users, and more."
Contributors include tennis icon and Bumble global advisor Serena Williams; actresses and Bumble creative directors Erin and Sara Foster; and inspiring entrepreneurs like Man Repeller founder Leandra Medine; jewellery designer Jennifer Meyer; and Away luggage co-founder Jen Rubio.
Gracing the first cover is real-life Bumble user Lauren Chan – model and entrepreneur; her plus-size women's workwear line Henning will launch later this year. You can find her on Bumble Bizz.
In attempts to provide the most they can for their users, the team at Bumble is giving copies of their first issue for free while supplies last.
For those keen to get involved, just open the app and match with the magazine's profile to get one delivered your way.
