Dolly Parton sparks viral challenge with celebs sharing VERY different Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Tinder profiles

DOLLY Parton has sparked a new viral trend which has got celebrities poking fun at how people present themselves on different social media platforms.

The new craze is based on sharing four photos of yourself that represent your LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Tinder.

While the LinkedIn one is more serious for job-related opportunities, the Tinder shot is typically more racy and daring.

And the Instagram picture is usually more arty, while Facebook can be a fun image with friends and family.

Country singing icon Dolly, 74, posted a collage of mocked-up profile photos of her to Twitter and Instagram yesterday.

The 9 to 5 singer uploaded her four snaps with the caption: "Get you a woman who can do it all" - and now numerous celebrities have done their version.

Other people to jump on the bandwagon are Ellen DeGeneres, who shared a sweet snap with her partner and dogs for Facebook, and a saucy shot in fishnet tights and a long blonde wig for Tinder.

She added the caption: "When my agent asks if I can play different roles".

Dolly's goddaughter Miley Cyrus poked fun at the challenge sharing four very similar shots for each of the options, with the Tinder one being slightly more racy than the others.

Elsewhere, Kerry Washington revealed she was inspired by Dolly to post her version of the trend, captioning her Instagram: "Inspired by @dollyparton, of course!".

In her collage, the 42-year-old posed in a grey suit for LinkedIn, with her parents for Facebook, standing in a glamorous ballgown for Instagram and seductively laying on a bed in black underwear for Tinder.

Actor Mark Ruffalo got in on the action, with him topless with a yellow towel around his head for his Tinder picture, but posing for shot with his Avengers co-stars Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Robert Downey Jr on Instagram.

The 52-year-old captioned the post: "Get a guy who will play them all."

Another legendary singer Janet Jackson shared her take on the viral trend today, using the hashtag "#CanDoItAllChallenge".

The All For You songstress was sure to set pulses racing as she selected a topless shot of herself wearing a pair of bikini bottoms and a shell necklace in the Tinder tile.

Other stars to join in are Mindy Kaling, Oprah Winfrey, Naomi Campbell and Jennifer Garner.

It’s the latest trend to spread rapidly on social media, after a huge increase in people sharing the "Who Are You?" filters on Instagram.
