    Dating Account | Bumble Account Sign in

    Bumble is rapidly gaining ground on Tinder thanks to the unique way it works. By allowing women to initiate conversations, it attracts more female users. This in turn attracts more male users and forces everyone to up their game. As someone who has always been about quality over quantity, this resonates well with me.

    Like Tinder, Bumble uses Facebook to build your profile. Also like Tinder, it’s a taker not a giver so will not alert your Facebook friends you’re on Bumble or post anything to Facebook while you use the app.

    Does Bumble filter Facebook friends?

    The one downside to these apps using Facebook is the risk of seeing friends, colleagues or co-workers on the app. Or them seeing you. The original questions asked if Bumble filters or excludes Facebook friends and the answer is we really don’t know. I tried some experiments with a group of friends to try to find out.

    I had 13 friends in common with a buddy who I ran this experiment with. In our profiles, it showed only 7. Another friend and I had 42 mutual friends, mostly from college, but only 27 of those showed in Bumble. While this is a very limited experiment, it does indicate that some kind of filtering or exclusion does happen. Either that or there is a glitch in how Bumble extrapolates Facebook friend data.

    According to Bumble, it will collect your name, username, email address, phone number, gender, date of birth, sexual preference, images, location and login information. It will also access your friends lists and data from other social media accounts like Instagram and any other that you link to Facebook. It says it will only publicly share what it needs to but says nothing about filtering, exclusions or anything about how Bumble works.

    Do it yourself

    Now you can sign up to Bumble using your phone number it makes perfect sense to do just that. Existing users may want to recreate their Bumble profile and new users will definitely want to use the phone option instead of Facebook. It does mean you will have to prepare your own profile and images and upload them yourself but also means you have full control over who sees what and when.
