Some very random challenge taking over the internet.
The thigh gap, the belfie, the salt and ice challenge, the corn on the cob. All these strange challenges only made us realize how easily weirdness spreads over the internet and how one can find common ground with others over these challenges.
Please like in 5 seconds, or something bad will happen to you in the next 15 days type of post.
We've all seen relationships break, wars being fought, animals get abused and kid's fail exams – all because at some point of time, we skipped liking "that" post.
People risking their lives to capture Pokemon.
Augmented reality is the future … We saw mature adults with twisted ankles, getting hit by a car or falling in ditches. Way to Adult … Really.
One scroll on Facebook, 4 married friends.
Yeah, this one's unfortunately not a trend but reality. The married friends only double each year, even triple maybe. And the only thing you can look forward to in 2017 is the last season of Game of Thrones.

Young and mature women contouring their faces with knives, cello tape and stilettos.
As if the use of multiple brushes was complicated enough, international makeup artists introduced these killer techniques to chisel faces and perfect selfies!
Some of your friends gaining 4k followers overnight.
How, just how? In school you barely had two friends and one of them was a book. In college you always sat by yourself in the library. But on social media you have a village following you.
One scroll, the Kardashians, Jenners Black Chyna & Tokyo Toni.
Because- We love pictures of transformation -weight loss & gender loss, big butts, nude selfies, wigs and luxurious lifestyles.
12 year olds in satin red lips, high heels and low slung tops.
This girl I know, she's like my own little sister- almost unrecognizable on the third floor of her heels. Hmm, the lip shade is actually pretty good and the hair looks just right. Kids today definitely have a better style sense than you ever had. So what! She's still too young for that.
With that, let's create more havoc today than we ever did and here's wishing everyone a very promising 2017.
