We live in a world where there's an app for everything. It's nearly impossible to go through a day without using an app, may it be for networking, entertainment or even productivity. When it comes to professional networking apps, like LinkedIn in particular, people feel that users are overstepping the app's purpose. Recently, a premed graduate, Mia Soviero, shared a video on TikTok about how her reach on LinkedIn was skyrocketing and it caused a stir online. People couldn't help but point out how many LinkedIn users are slowly turning it into a dating app.

Soviero mentioned in her video that, one night, she casually made a LinkedIn post about her thesis. She woke up the next morning only to be flabbergasted by the overwhelming response. Soviero received nearly 600 new requests to connect on LinkedIn and she pointed out that her post had reached some of the top experts in the field of medical research. "I guess the science dudes liked my research," an excited Soviero wrote in the captions. 


Soviero's video garnered over 1.2 million views and TikTok with people lauding her thesis as well as her surging LinkedIn reach. Many pointed out that they saw Soviero's LinkedIn post and that she was gaining immense popularity on the platform. However, her staggering reach spawned a new subject of contemplation when the video was reshared by a user, who goes by @coldhealing, on X. The caption to their X post which garnered over 2.8 million views read, "Linkedin will be a dating app by 2027," and people couldn't agree more with this perspective.





"One of my business professors always told us about how dudes would ask her on dates on LinkedIn. Or they would ask her to get coffee for like, 'networking' and then would be super creepy to her," noted @VERYCOOLLUKEY. "It only makes sense. The way so many people talk about their jobs makes it clear they confuse their job itself for a deep, interpersonal relationship," said @goodmastyear. "LinkedIn has been a dating app for losers since years ago. My old Manager used to brag about the girls he met through the app. LinkedIn became a 'show-off status' platform, unfortunately," added @Donvergaaaas. "It's going to become even more insufferable than it already is when that happens," chimed in @tsarlet2.

Speaking of gaining popularity on LinkedIn, it's not always based on how attractive or available the poster is. In 2023, a loving son's LinkedIn post about his dad Peter Judge's job loss broke the internet and hundreds of strangers reached out with job offers, assistance and words of encouragement. Patrick McCarthy wrote, "He loves his customers. He loves being the reason people come back. He loves seeing customers seek out his lane for check-ins and updates." He pointed out that after 4 years of relentless service, his dad was "overwhelmed, scared and emotional" about losing his job abruptly. The overwhelming response to this post made Judge consider joining LinkedIn and contemplate the job offers that came his way.
