Google buys Bump

Google has purchased Bump.

Bump is a 4-year old company who offers a mobile app which allows users to exchange contact information by bumping their phones.

I remember being at a trade show and running into a past client and having the client say, can we bump information.

This is probably how most people are introduced to Bump.

Bump announced the purchase on it’s company blog.

“Our mission at Bump has always been to build the simplest tools for sharing the information you care about with other people and devices,” Bump CEO David Leib wrote on the company’s blog. “So we couldn’t be more thrilled to join Google, a company that shares our belief that the application of computing to difficult problems can fundamentally change the way that we interact with one another and the world.”

Bump is secure so you don’t have to worry about someone bumping you without your permission.

It will be interesting to see how Google uses bump.  Bump was a free app so the company was never profitable. Only time will tell.
