I think it’s safe to say that we all remember where we were and what we were doing when the first viral sensation of 2019 exploded on social media.

OK fine, perhaps not. But I do recall looking at Facebook on a recent Sunday and, for no apparent reason that I can think of, friends were sharing side-by-side images of their first-ever profile photo and their current one.

It was fun: Different hair colours, weight loss, weight gain, new spectacles, more wrinkles, or, in many cases, less wrinkles because let’s face it, #betterfilters. Some friends looked 10 years older (aka their age) and others looked exactly the same today as they did in 2008, the year that Facebook began to really boom.

I didn’t partake in “the challenge,” but here is what I believe to be my first Facebook profile photo (Dec. 2007) beside my current one (Dec. 2015).

I don’t know what to say.

From Facebook, it trickled onto Instagram where it really took root and blossomed into a couple of hashtags: #HowHardDidAgingHitYouChallenge and #10YearChallenge. What began in earnest morphed into some really great jokes, like these gems:
