What’s the #10YearChallenge and how to participate?

Sometimes a social media craze takes over users so quickly, that before you know what’s happening, it’s a trend! After quite recently, the Netflix movie Bird Box had people performing chores blindfolded, there’s a new trend — #10YearChallenge.

It picked up momentum towards the end of last year in Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with thousands of people, including celebrities sharing a comparison of their current photo with one form 10 years ago.

The 10 year challenge is also synonymous to the #HowHardDidAgingHitYou challenge, the aging challenge and #GlowUp challenge. To take part in the challenge, you just have to post two images of yourself taken at least ten years apart.

The purpose is to show how you’ve changed over a decade, or the photos might as well show how you haven’t aged a day. You can then use the hashtag #10YearChallenge, and tag some people to post a single throwback shot to continue the challenge.

Here’s how the celebs did it:
