Bumble Introduces New Pre-Contest Message Feature ‘Compliments’ • businessroundups.org

Bumble has experimented with many ways to help its users interact with each other other than tapping and swiping different profiles. Today, Bumble launched a message-before-match feature, “Compliments,” that allows users to send a message before deciding to connect.

Users can send one Compliment per day, and there’s a limit of 150 characters per Compliment, a spokesperson told businessroundups.org. Compliments can be seen on the user’s main Encounters page, as well as on their Beeline, which is a perk for Premium members. Users also get notifications for unread compliment messages when opening the app.

The goal of the new feature is for users to stand out and be “even more aware to start the conversation on a positive note,” Bumble wrote in its announcement. In a growing number of online daters, it can be a nice bonus for users to send a compliment to a potential match.

“Compliments answer the what and why of dating. What is it about a person that you find fascinating? Why do you want to get to know someone better? With that in mind, there really isn’t a better way to start a connection,” Shan Boodram, sex and relationships expert at Bumble, said in a statement. “Giving a compliment can be as simple as sending a friendly message about a shared interest or hobby you see on someone’s profile.”

Compliments join Bumble’s various other recently launched features such as Recommend to a friendwhich allows users to share a Bumble profile with their friends, and “Bantr Live” blind-dating feature, a weekly experience where users connect with a potential match via chat without seeing what they look like.

Rival Tinder also has a message-before-match feature. Tinder has a “Quick chat” feature that gives users a few seconds to chat with someone before matching. In addition, the “Super Like” feature allows users to add a note with their like, and the potential match can read it before choosing to swipe yes or no.
