Bumble has released a range of statistics on the interests and habits of its community, covering TV, sports and news sources as well as occupation preferences and in-app behaviour.

The most followed social media accounts among Bumble users were ‘Humans of New York’ and ‘Tank Sinatra’, and the most popular sport was baseball.

Their favourite candy was M&Ms, and the modal news source was NPR (National Public Radio).

Stranger Things and Big Little Lies were among the most watched TV shows, while Wonder Woman was the most popular movie.

Users of the feminist app were fans of Serena Williams, Steph Curry, Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, as well as Kate McKinnon and Aziz Ansari.

Student bodies at universities in Indiana, Texas, California and Michigan were among the most active populations on Bumble.

The most right-swiped occupations were also listed, with dentistry coming first.

Nutritionists, registered nurses, account executives and firefighter paramedics completed the top five.

Pilots, surgeons, attorneys, physical therapists and athletes occupied the 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th places on the list respectively.  

The most mutually attractive profession across genders, medical sales, fell outside of the top ten.

Bumble’s analysis also showed Sunday to be the most popular day for swiping, while Friday was the least popular.

The best time for messaging was between 8pm and 10pm.

Users with 6 pictures on their profile were the most likely to receive a right-swipe, and the best openers (from women!) were GIFs and short messages.

Women on the app averaged ten matches per month, while men averaged eight. Bumble claims this shows they are “in the business of quality”.

Bumble captioned the statistics with the following message: “2017 was quite a year. We’re lucky that so many of you fired up Bumble and took a chance on love, friendship, and networking.”
