Tinder is introducing Verified Profiles. Just like on Twitter, Facebook, Vine and Instagram, they’ll be identified by a blue tick. But how do you get that soon to be coveted symbol?
Right now? You won’t. Not unless you’re a “notable public figure.” Tinder didn’t give me too much of a steer on what it’ll count as ‘notable’ but it includes celebrities and athletes.
I can’t actually see politicians being so keen to be verified on Tinder as they are on other services, can you?
If you do consider yourself ‘notable’, Tinder’s VP of Global Communications and Branding, Rosette Pambakian, told me it’s reviewing requests for verification “on a case-by-case basis.”
She says: “A limited number of requests will be taken into consideration to start – others will be added to the wait list.”
If you want to try your luck at getting your profile verified, you need to email [email protected] to be considered.
