The FaceApp #AgeChallenge is filling Instagram with pictures of old people
While most photo apps and cameras are now geared towards making you look better, the latest craze on social media is an app that lets people know what they may look like when they’re older. FaceApp, which allows people to transform their appearances with just a filter, has resulted in social media being flooded with photos of elderly-looking celebrities and people using the hashtag #FaceAppChallenge.
To take part in the challenge, all you have to do is download the app, select a photo of yourself (or anyone else) to drastically age and then try out the free old option in the age section of the app. It then edits your chosen face by giving it wrinkles, grey hair and other little details which combine to create a very old face. Naturally, people are running wild with it online, as they share what their faces would look like in 60 years; and let's be honest, the 'old' selfies look extremely realistic.
