The 10-year challenge has taken social media by storm. While some people feel that posting a 10-year-ago picture makes them nostalgic, others look at it as a waste of time.
To put your 10-year back picture with a current one is a nostalgic moment. At the end of the day social media is social media only and it’s your choice to decide how much is too much and what you want to put out there for public consumption. There is no substitute for one-on-one meetings or conversations. To make social media your identity or addiction is surely not needed, irrespective of you being a public figure or not.
I think it's super cool that people get to go back in time and see how things were and what has happened since the last 10 years. I looked very different 10 years ago so for me it is a total nostalgic feeling. I was a hundred percent transported back in time and I think it's really nice to see everybody's transformation.
It’s a major throwback kind of a thing in which you can see all the transformations you have gone through all these years. It’s a reminder about your roots, where you started from and where you have reached till now. It’s like a flashback of all your experiences. It does make one nostalgic in a big way. Social media is taking place of real emotions but it’s good to share things like these because it always reminds you of the person you were and also it is like an inspiration to others as well.
I feel 10 year challenge is something very interesting, it makes you realize how you used to look and now how you are. But the sad thing is that very few people are actually putting their real pictures because 10 years back there were no filters. So, today to show the world that they look better than before, they are touching up their photos and posting them. That's really silly. You should be honest to yourself, some people are fat, some are thin, some look better and some might not look that great like they used to look 10 years back.
It’s quite interesting to see everyone do this, it definitely takes you down memory lane and makes you nostalgic and you see so many changes in your physical and mental attributes in every way. You get to see how much you have changed. So, it’s really wonderful to do this and I am definitely going to add my picture.
My reaction is 'amazing". The challenge is helping many people review or revisit their past. Undoubtedly the exercise of reviewing ones past definitely gets us nostalgic back. There are some lessons learnt and you get to know how far you have come. Of course, social media has altered real interactions and people are more interested in clicking and posting stuff rather than enjoying the moment.
Actually, because of social media, you are reliving those times and remembering how you were 10 years back. The world has got very virtual and sometimes you miss a personal touch. But it all depends on the effort you make.
I think it’s fun and less dangerous compared to a lot of other challenges that keep trending on social media every now and then. Yes, it does make one nostalgic and is also a good reality check in terms of how far you have come. Social media can never take the place of real emotions. Real emotions are always present, whether you show it or not is a different story.
I feel it is a waste of time and energy. There are better issues and goals to focus your energy on. Social media should be utilized for the right reasons rather than for such challenges.
It’s interesting to put pictures of ten years ago, it makes you nostalgic. It is the age of social media and it just takes few seconds to upload pictures, so it’s fun. I don’t think we should make much of it.
It’s everyone's personal choice what they want to share or what they want to keep private. I am a person who always looks forward, so there is no point in sharing 10 years back pictures. As an actor, I would love people to talk about my talent and work, rather than how I looked in the past.
It is funny that people who have nothing to do than to start such challenges, social media has to be used as a tool and not to be made an addiction. How I used to look 10 years back is my personal stuff, why would I like to tell the whole world publicly by putting up a picture. Everything cannot be made public by putting it on social media.
I wonder who started this 10-year challenge. To each his own. I am not a social media junkie. I am neither in favour of the challenge nor against it. One requires a lot of time and energy to spend on social media and there is no substitute for real feelings and emotions. Social media should be used as social media and one should not get addicted to it.
