Still, the little monarch of country music
he dipped his toes in a 21st century achievement: inventing a successful meme.
Apparently Ms. Parton was the first to take part in what some have nicknamed “social challenge”
a mosaic of four photos of potential profile photos for social media sites LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Tinder.
On January 21st, the 74-year-old debuted with her collage: for the LinkedIn professional networking site, Dolly is in school buttoned mode. For Facebook for families, Dolly in a cheerful Christmas sweater. For Instagram based on aesthetics, Dolly in black and white with a high waisted bell bottom and a guitar in her hand. And for the Tinder dating app, Dolly in the bunny outfit she played for Playboy.
“Take a woman who can do it all,” she he wrote
, a phrase that has already become a familiar proverb on the Internet. He punctuated the sentence with a clever and winking emotion, as if to say, “You know I’m not really on Tinder, but I’m trendy enough to get the reference.”

in addition to thousands of unfamiliar people quickly attached themselves to the idea and published their versions. They too were cute and winking and functioned primarily as an excuse to post four flattering photos at once.
It is unclear whether Parton is aware of the mild storm on social media that he created. CNN contacted the Parton publicist to confirm whether the star manages their social media accounts but has not received a response.
So for whoever is responsible for Dolly’s new social success, brava. But you couldn’t fool us that he would ever use LinkedIn to expand his professional circle.
