Internet and social networks, especially, sometimes look like a lonely and isolated place.
The culture of influencing changes the way we think about ourselves and is even blamed for increasing anxiety and panic attacks.
But from time to time, social networks can produce something fun, carefree and deliciously stupid, as a challenge to the emoticons.
It's a viral fashion in which a group of friends create their favorite emoji in real life, with results more and more... and funny.
The challenge was really widespread last week in March when Twitter user Jeydah Weydah from USA released a screenshot of the mobile phone where she and her friends recreated their favorite emojes only to their faces (and some well positioned apps).
"We've made a haunting challenge in my group chat," Jeydah said.
The chat has been retouched and received more than 800,000 words in a few hours.
How to play the emo challenge?
Actually, it's pretty simple.
All you need is a group of friends or family, some kind of group chat applications, and sense of humor.
You simply select the emoticon and try to recreate it. Obviously, being brave and creative, the better.
Once you succeed in emulating basic emoticons, such as surprising and shameless faces, you may want to embark on what's really exciting like riding and hiking.
Of course, people were delighted with the idea of sharing their own emo challenges on the internet.
For example, this man is spectacularly recreating eagle emoticons.
While this inspired him dancer emoticons.
These girls really took the challenge seriously, rejuvenating crocodile, dolphin and lizards.
Of course, this is not the first viral challenge the internet has produced.
Who can forget the challenge cinnamon – in which people shot trying to swallow cinnamon without taking anything in 60 seconds or doll – in which the person suddenly was completely quiet while music was playing and the rest of the world moved -?
However, one of the biggest viral challenges on the Internet in recent years has been massive challenge of the cafe ice water, which is highlighted in 2014.
Participants poured ice water over their heads and eventually collected more than $ 100 million for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis research, and money collected helped scientists discover a new gene associated with this disease.
However, there is a darker side of these challengesas we have seen with the dangerous challenge of the Tide Capsule, in which teenagers mostly ate Tide brand detergent detergent capsules, which can be deadly if swallowed.
Old versions of these viral and common phenomena on the Internet come back to the early days of the world network.
Then the users shared e-mailsas well as a "gift" by Bill Gates, who circulated in 1997, assuring that Microsoft and other businesses give users $ 5,000 to Facebook users who clicked on the sharing link.
In 1999, Microsoft was forced to post a message on its website that it was a fraud.
Previously, in the days without the Internet in the '70s and' 80s, people shared jokes, cartoons and early memes by fax in what is known as "faxl"Or"photocopylore".
So, when you are laughing with your friends doing the emo challenge, imagine they are the brave passers-by of time They had to be satisfied with a simple fax.
