A new app dubebd LinkedUp!, has launched to introduce a smart new way to date professionals from your LinkedIn network from your smartphone.
Now available for iOS, LinkedUp! says it’s the first interactive mobile dating application that allows users to find matches using LinkedIn’s quality user base.
Users can anonymously LIKE or PASS on profiles pulled from the LinkedIn network ….start dating them. Looks interesting as it will help some boring LinkedIn users to tap into the huge online dating industry worth over $4 billion globally.
LinkedUpwill take on Tinder and Bang(with Friends) which pull Facebook user information and will do it better because the app filters potential dates by their job industry, age, proximity and gender and uses the LinkedIn account photo and personal information. The app also has events, parties and places you can take your date at.
To make it safe and help prevent you not to lose your job, LinkedUp doesn’t not share any of your experiences on LinkedIn even if you are dating your boss or junior. You can anonymously hit on someone but ‘like’ or ‘pass’ your LinkedIn contacts and if the other person likes your move, you can start chatting and you never know what might happen. I know guys who can’t wait to have the app launched for Android or Windows as at the moment there is only an iOS one.
UPDATE:This piece has been updated to reflect that LinkedUp is not in anyway affiliated to LinkedIn.
