Whitney Wolfe, a co-founder of dating app Tinder, says she wants her new company to disrupt the sector, and cut back on the amount of online harassment directed towards women.  She describes her start-up Bumble as a “feminist dating app”, where men are typically more polite, because women make the first move.

Discussion

1) The 26-year-old entrepreneur Whitney Wolfe founded Bumble a year ago. She says the restrictions in the app which block men from driving the conversations are pushing social change.  What sorts of “restrictions” could be put in other apps you use to drive social change?

2) Is there a market for “social change” apps, and what can you do to be a part of it?
