How to Add/Change Your Education in Bumble
If you’re serious about online dating, you’ll want to give your potential match a closer insight into your life. This includes adding information that extends beyond just your picture and a catchy description.
Good examples are your level of education and your occupation. If you’re a Bumble user, and you’ve had trouble adding your education, this article will give you the guidance you need. Before we get into the way to add this piece of info, let’s discuss the reason to do it in the first place.
Why Should You Include Your Education?
Many people on Bumble hope to establish a deeper connection with someone. This can’t be done simply by looking at someone’s basic information, which is what most users provide.
Some people are interested in the level of education of their future date. This is something that’s important to a variety of educated users, so they consider it one of the most relevant pieces of information.
If you’ve decided to find your soulmate, you should let them know if this is something that’s important to you by adding your education info to your profile. Who knows, maybe you will match with your college crush. If you’d like to try your luck, here is how you can add your education to Bumble.
How to Edit Education Info?
As you probably know, Bumble lets you sign up either using your Facebook account or your phone number. If you sign up with Facebook, all your info will automatically be synced. This also includes the education info that you have shared with Facebook.
All you have to do is use the ‘sign up with Facebook’ option and your profile will pretty much be good to go.
However, if you sign up using your phone number, you will have to build your profile from scratch. This is where you might run into an issue with adding your education.
When you want to add your job, it gives you a list to choose from and all you have to do is select your occupation. Unfortunately, you can’t do this for your education.
The only way to add information is through Facebook. The same goes for changing it. Once you’ve synced your Facebook profile with you Bumble account, your education can’t be changed from within the app. What you have to do is change the information on your Facebook profile.
If you want to hide your education, you need to delete it from your Facebook profile altogether, then sync the data again. Another thing you can do is deny Bumble permission to this information while you’re creating the account.
The Final Word
If you want to show people what school you went to, you’re going to need Facebook for that. However inconvenient, this is currently the only way to add and change this information. If you’ve already signed up using your mobile number, try connecting it to your Facebook account and you should be good to go.
Hopefully, Bumble will understand that this is inconvenient for many users and make the necessary changes. Until then, Facebook is your only choice.
