Memes are essentially a means of expression that is more effectively used over the internet. Certain memes could viral and the latest one to hit the trending section is the #DollyParton challenge.

 The ‘LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Tinder’ meme is the latest viral trend on social media

Social media apps.

Started by the 74-year-old country singer from the US, Parton posted a collage of four images of herself on Instagram. Every photo was different and labelled with a social media platform. While it seems like fun, it actually is an indication of how we tend to create and display different sides of our personalities based on the platform. They include LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Tinder.

For LinkedIn, Parton opted for a photo where she’s looking professional. On Facebook, she’s donned a sweater that is family-friendly whereas, on Instagram, it’s more of a laidback and artsy image. Finally, for Tinder, she’s wearing a Playboy bunny outfit and she has captioned the collage with “Get you a woman who can do it all 😉.”

Although it's all fun and games with everyone following the viral trend to post different pictures of themselves, it calls for some self-introspection or an open discussion on how we tend to change our external appearances based on the people around us.
