Tinder is hopping on the bandwagon and has announced plans to start rolling out “verified accounts”.
This is the same blue ticker that appears on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram — next to names of celebrities or notable public figures.
According to a Tinder blog post,
“Tinder: it’s how people meet. Each day, 26 million matches are made on Tinder, and we do our best to keep those matches real — that’s why we’re rolling out Verified Profiles.”
Starting today, some accounts will have a blue tick, which signifies that Tinder employees have reviewed the account as a legit by Tinder employees.
Among those who are eligible for a blue check mark are notable journalists, musicians, actors, politicians, models or pretty much any “notable” public figure, the International Business Times reports.
This new announcement came after rumors began plaguing on social media, especially after the media reported on Hilary Duff and Leonardo DiCaprio who have used the dating app, TechCrunch reported on Tuesday.
Recent analytic reports reveal that Tinder users swipe through 1.6 billion profiles and make more than 26 million matches per day.
For many, Tinder rose to prominence after singer and actress Hilary Duff began using the dating app. On the move to find a “normal” boyfriend, Duff shared the dating app with her followers — dramatically increasing the dating app’s popularity on social media.
