Tinder Is Now Verifying Celebrity Accounts--But Should They?
July 10, 2015
There are always rumors swirling that so and so celebrity is using the dating app, Tinder. Until now, it was hard to tell if it was actually a real celebrity or just a fake profile. Similar to Twitter and Instagram, Tinder just introduced “Verified Profiles” so when “notable public figures, celebrities and athletes appear in your recommendations, you’ll know it’s for real.”
I personally don’t agree with Tinder verifying celebrity profiles. The reason celebrities probably join the app is to meet someone, a real person. If a Tinder user sees a verified symbol on their matches profile, chances are they will pursue said celebrity because, uh, they’re a celebrity. Hilary Duff openly admits to using the app. Lindsay Lohan and Leonardo DiCaprio are both rumored to use Tinder, among others.
