As most people who still use Facebook have noticed, the hip trend for everyone’s mom, best friend and distant cousin is to post a picture of oneself presently and compare it to an image from ten years prior. Some are serious, some are hilarious.

Whether the music has glowed-up as much as one’s profile picture is up for interpretation.
