Is Bumble better than Tinder? Whether or not Bumble is better than Tinder is a subjective opinion. It is my personal belief that Bumble is better because it is much is harder to tinker with the backend than it is with Tinder. What I mean, is that Tinder is easy for people to automate with BOTS (software pretending to be a person), while Bumble employs a dual-application layer encryption scheme that only one company (buzzhumble), has been able to exploit thus far.
I was at a crypto-hackathon in 2017 and one of the prize-winners who was an undergraduate security research who called himself Zào. He told me that based off of scraped data from the Tinder API, if you assume that between 5% and 10% of its users are fake or inactive, then Bumble actually has more real-life users.
Bumble has a key difference in functionality. Women must initiate the conversation. This cuts down on “hey, what’s up, yo, wanna see my thing”, type conversations.
I like Bumble because I don’t ever have to worry about creeps who I don’t match with reporting me. If I swipe right on literally ANYONE on Tinder I get an instant match and my phone blows up with d-slinger notifications.
Bumble is classy, secure, and in my opinion, a better company to deal with. Tinder was started by the Match group who has an insidious advertisement methodology. Zao also postulated that 20% of bumbles 1-star reviews on the app market are fake as they seem to be programmatically generated. I wonder who did that?
So in short, the dating app market is dark, and it’s fierce. I prefer a dating app that doesn’t inundate me with unsolicited crap.
We believe Bumble is better than Tinder.
