1. What is this challenge?
The newest social media challenge was started by Dolly Parton, who shared a meme of herself last week. The meme makes fun of the different ways people present themselves on social media. On LinkedIn, people try very hard to look professional, on Facebook, everyone tries to look wholesome, Instagram is for trends and hip fashion, and Tinder is for presenting yourself in the best light to look more appealing for the potential romantic partners.
Get you a woman who can do it all 😉
