Who started Dolly Parton Challenge? Everything you need to know about this challenge

The Dolly Parton Challenge was started by none other than Dolly Parton. It is also known as the hashtag #DollyPartonChallenge and LinkedIn / Facebook / Instagram / Tinder Profile Pictures, which refers to a series of four-panel images in which people share what could be their profile pictures for different social media accounts. The images, which became popular on Instagram after singer Dolly Parton posted four examples of profile pictures in January 2020, typically compare the differences in LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, and Tinder.

On January 21st, Dolly Parton posted four images of herself each with a social media platform label to Instagram with the caption, “Get you a woman who can do it all 😉” (shown below). The post gained over 409,700 likes in two days.
