Where do you go when you want to get connected to well-educated, high-income professionals? On LinkedIn of course! And this is exactly what BeLinked is surfing on.

The 2013 Pew Social Networking report stated that LinkedIn is now the second largest social network, with a  key demographic of college graduates and high-income households. So it was probably only a matter of time before a Tinder-like app came out using the huge amount of data provided by LinkedIn.

Using LinkedIn data automatically brings an idea of quality. Users feel the profiles they will find on BeLinked are more likely to be BeLinked, thanks to the established reputation of LinkedIn.

BeLinked is pulling data (name, age, industry, school…) and photos through the LinkedIn API to help users look for potential matching profiles. The app works just like Tinder: You browse through profiles, swipe left to pass and right to like. One a mutual match is made, users can start sending each other messages.

The plus, is the BeLinked also allows users to recommend potential dates to friends via text or email.

Max Fischer, CEO and President of BeLinked, explained:

There are a bunch of apps out there for finding a date. With BeLinked, our goal is to sift through the clutter to connect users with more quality matches based on LinkedIn’s already trusted and reputable network.
