It used to be changing your Facebook status that screamed "I'm in a couple!" but now it's allowing a smitten picture of you both to be uploaded to social media.
Which is just what happened this week when Taylor's friend Brittany LaManna shared a picture to her Instagram account showing Taylor nuzzling into Tom while sitting on his knee.
Also in the photo is Blake Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds.
Tom and Taylor's romance appears to be going at super speed! It feels like only yesterday they were pictured kissing outside her Rhode Island home (it was actually mid-June), then they were in England meeting Tom's family, then getting all romantic in Rome.
Over the weekend, they were back in the States where Tom was snapped wearing an "I [heart] TS" t-shirt while frolicking with Taylor and her squad in the ocean at her annual 4th July party.
As you'd expect, this loved up display has been a big talking point on Twitter, with some praising it, others describing it as nauseating, and many pointing out Ryan looks like he'd rather be anywhere else in the world than posing for a couples' photo!
Here's how the internet reacted:
Bleh, put it away

Now that Tom Hiddleston has worn a t-shirt that says 'I Taylor Swift' he is immediately out of the running to play #Bond right?— Becky Stone (@_BeckyStone_) July 6, 2016
If this fake Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston romance has taught us anything, it's that @idriselba is the only choice to play James Bond— Valerie (@ValerieGauvain) July 6, 2016
