LinkedUp, a dating app drawing from social business network LinkedIn, aims to help you find love as well as a new job
A dating app drawing on the business networking site LinkedIn has been launched to help you search for love alongside potential employment.
The newly launched LinkedUp mixes business with pleasure by connecting with your LinkedIn profile, listing your employment and education details to act as ‘icebreakers’ for hot matches.
The app encourages users to “get the conversation going by already knowing what industry your match works in,” allowing users to select the age range, gender and preferred industries of potential dates.
After entering preferences, users are then faced with a hot-or-not style Tinder swiping system for users, swiping left to reject a potential connection and right to indicate interest.
Like Tinder, messages can only be exchanged if both parties are interested in each other, and even browse your mutual LinkedIn connections.
