There is a lot that comes with success, especially if the success is very huge and brings a lot of influence with it. One person that has become such a huge influence and made a huge impact is Whitney Wolfe with Bumble. When she has developed the app, she has thought about ways that she could influence the world of dating. She has not only influenced dating, but has also influenced society for women. She has the right balance of views when it comes to men and women’s empowerment. She gave women a way to become empowered and be assertive as opposed to being passive.
When I founded @Bumble, I didn’t know what I was supposed to do. Just what I wanted to fix: the antiquated rules of dating. Thanks, @FitzTepper, for the story. > Whitney Wolfe Herd doesn’t care what she’s supposed to do https://t.co/hXeLSv0LdZ via @techcrunch

Given that Whitney Wolfe has become one of the more prominent figures in the world of online dating, she has come to some conclusions and made some hard decisions as to the type of environment she wants to present to the online community. She has decided to ban images of guns on her site. This has resulted in a lot of harassment from people. Whitney Wolfe and her staff have been faced with threats of showing up at the place of business and showing off. This has resulted in them needing some form of protection for the company for a while.
One thing about business is that people who become prominent are more likely going to have to deal with a lot of issues from others because of their success. Bumble founder feared she’d be blacklisted after Tinder lawsuit. When a company has a universal appeal, then there is likely going to be someone who is not happy with any changes that are going to be made with the company moving forward. However, Whitney Wolfe has thought a lot about what she thinks is good for her company. She stands behind what she believes in and will only change her actions if her beliefs change.
