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.
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:
