Great, one more app to remind me that I'm not as famous as Hillary Duff.

Today, Tinder introduced verified profiles. According to the company's blog, "Now when notable public figures, celebrities and athletes appear in your recommendations, you'll know it's for real." Verified users will get a little blue check mark on their profile, so now you can make instant judgements based on physical appearance and fame level.

I wonder what you have to do to get verified. Like, do you have to be a Taylor Swift-level celeb (as if that's possible), or is it going to be like Twitter where blue check marks are generously doled out to a bunch of nerdy Internet writers? Speaking of which, can you believe I'm not verified on Twitter?


And how do you think Amanda in the pic above got verified? She's probably an actress who has done acclaimed plays and is now breaking out with a lead role in a hot Sundance movie and a guest stint on The Good Wife. Good for her.
