BumOne About Us
A New, Safer Type of Social Media
The BumOne App is the flagship app for a new breed of social apps. Interest Based Social Interaction System. Presently, this new app design is pending patent at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”). We designed specifically BumOne to connect tobacco aficionados, members identify themselves as either a Bummer or a Bummee with their geographic location as inserted into a map. Please, use this app only in public, well-lighted areas. Bummers and Bummees will not share personal information online until they are ready to do so, eliminating contact from misguided, abusive or unkind people.
We did not build BumOne to generate large memberships of people, instead this app's aim is to remove all cyberbullying, scams, and other anger driven uses of social media.
We set up this app with a great deal of control delegated to admin functions. Admin will actively oversee communications between members. This approach differs from most social media apps. We do not plan to pass the buck by misusing concepts, such as freedom of speech. Our mission does not include making as much money as possible, by allowing unregulated members to do whatever they want within the app community.
Most sensible people believe do not approve of app owners earning trillions of dollars, to the detriment of the app users.
Admin must be able to limit the ability of members to cause injury to fellow members, and the rest of the world with their unregulated conduct.
A Better Social Experience
Social media apps have lost their way.
We believe that social media apps should give users the opportunity to meet other online users, and meet users in public places. Social media apps are communities, or at least that is what they used to be. They should be a safe tool for members with similar, safe interests to interact.
Download the BumOne App. Share your thoughts with the folks at BumOne's home base. We want/need people to us by creating a groundswell for BumOne. We can do this, if we all work together, by blogging, outreach, boots on groundwork, and anything else that you want to help us with.
The BumOne App is for everyone that believes in protecting their own, and other people's, civil liberties.

Our aspirations for BumOne run deep.
There is no group with sufficient clout to advocate on behalf of all tobacco users. From the outset, we wish to be clear that we don't claim smokers' rights are among the most important issues that society faces in the 21st century.
We believe and agree that the science behind the potential dangers to individuals who have made the legal choice to use tobacco products is critical to discuss and share with the public, especially children. Education is a critical facet of everyone's life, and teaching children at a young age using tobacco products can be dangerous to one's health.
Much like the importance of educating the public about the impact that fossil fuels have had, and continue to have, on global warming.
The effects of the thousands of dangerous products that are legal to use are all deserving of our full attention. There is no disputing that using tobacco products can be dangerous.
However, shouldn't it be society that determines where, on the scale of dangerous activities, the effects of tobacco lie? So that we can compare that level of danger to the use of other products that are not challenged with the same level of scrutiny as tobacco products. Examples include products that cause obesity, drug addiction, depression, poverty, global warming, dangerous drugs?
The answer should be very obvious to all. The media demonize tobacco users, just like they do tobacco manufacturers. Why? Because we are easy targets, BumOne has set out to fix this, by creating an all-in-one forum for tobacco users to join their voices, loud and clear. There are great advantage to creating a large group of supporters, clout. The more people that join BumOne, the more clout we will have. Our numbers are strong. Even if a small percentage of the 1.5 billion smokers in the world join with us, BumOne members will do some incredible work.
Why did tobacco users become the fall guys for all that has gone wrong on our beautiful planet?
Why aren't people who consume a multitude of dangerous products, and the companies that manufacture these products, maligned like we and tobacco manufacturers are?
Why do strangers believe they may walk up to us while we are enjoying our choice of legal tobacco products?
Why do they waggle their fingers in our faces?
Why do they think we want to hear about their beliefs about the dangers of smoking?
Would these same people walk up to an obese woman and instruct her about the dangers of the Twinkies that she is quietly enjoying?
And, why are there no existing groups of tobacco users that form a strong, cohesive and unified front?
Tobacco users need such a group, for many reasons, to:
Counteract the “denormalization” of tobacco
Prevent further restrictions on the purchase and consumption of tobacco
Lobby politicians to amend public smoking bans to accommodate individuals who may consume legal products as they see fit
Establish closer links with other tobacco-friendly groups at home and abroad
Build support among consumers of tobacco and other similarly threatened groups
Highlight the increasingly intrusive nature of Big Government in the lives of private individuals
The time has finally arrived! You and BumOne will lead the way towards equal, fair treatment under the law. We've got the numbers to make this happen. Please join us on this mission.
