Professional social media site LinkedIn released a dating app called the LinkedUp! App. The company is following the suit of the mega-popular dating app Tinder, but adding a career-oriented spin on its version. You can "link up" or find dates with people based on their profession.

The app is also GPS-based, so users can view potential matches in their area. Like Tinder, you can "like" your matches' profiles, but instead of being linked to their Facebook profiles, candidates are depicted based on their LinkedIn profiles. Thus, the app reveals professional backgrounds, alma maters and any mutual workplace connections.

So, if you are wanting to find someone who shares common career ambitions or interests other than how many friends on Facebook they have, this app will help you find your perfect match.
