If you haven’t already noticed it dominating your Instagram feed, the “LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Tinder” challenge is the latest social media craze sweeping the internet.

The new viral trend was kickstarted earlier this week by 74-year-old singer Dolly Parton who shared a post of four contrasting images of herself that would be appropriate profile photos across the different social media platforms.

For LinkedIn, the “9 to 5” singer chose a photo of herself wearing a buttoned-up blazer, while the Facebook image saw the Grammy Award winner opt for a Christmas jumper.

Similarly, Instagram featured a throwback image of Parton wearing double denim and posing with a guitar while Tinder was represented with a photo of her in a Playboy bunny costume.

“Get you a woman who can do it all,” Parton playfully captioned the meme alongside a wink emoji.

So far, a host of A-listers have taken part in the challenge including supermodel Naomi Campbell, actor Mark Ruffalo, TV host Ellen Degeneres and The Office star Mindy Kaling.

Here, we take a look at some of our favourite celebrity “LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Tinder” posts.
