Why Bumble is overvalued

The Risk

Enter the World of Facebook

  • Nearly all popular Dating Apps use Facebook Data / Login for registration and validation of the user
  • Facebook already has data like Profile Photos, Workplace, Interests,… which are important in the wold of online dating
  • Facebook already has methods to validate profiles
  • Facebook already has a bigger user base than all of the dating competition
  • To me it seems like the user base of Facebook Dating is already bigger than the user base of Bumble in my local area
  • I’ve encountered no limits in swipes or other things
  • All features which are premium on the competition Apps are free on Facebook
  • I’ve encountered no Ads in Facebook Dating
  • I guess this depends on the individual, but I’ve got more matches in a few days on Facebook Dating than in multiple months on Bumble
  • Facebook promotes social connections — you see who is Friends with other Facebook Friends of you on Facebook. This adds validation - you trust the other side more that it is not a fake profile
