We all live in the era of being online where new trends or challenges are created every day. Social media platforms like Facebook or Instagram have become a place to keep ourselves updated with all new internet trends out there.

The year 2019 started with the hot trend “10-year challenge”, but before that, we had “Kiki challenge”. Below are five social networking trends that have become phenomenal over the past few years.

10-year challenge 

The newest trend has recently gone viral on Facebook and Instagram. Users are asked to post a current picture and a ten-year-old picture of themselves side-by-side. More than 5 million people took part in this internet challenge including lots of Bollywood and Hollywood stars.

Kiki challenge

The Kiki Challenge was inspired by Drake's single “In My Feelings”, from the new album Scorpion. This challenge includes jumping out of one moving car, dancing along to the song, miming a love heart and pretending to drive a car.

Ice bucket challenge 

Becoming the most extended challenge on social media that lasted nearly 4 years, the challenge involves the dumping of one bucket of water and ice over a person's head to raise awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Mannequin Challenge

This trend became popular on the Internet in November 2016. As a part of it, people have to take a video of themselves standing completely still like mannequins in a shop window and then post it online.

Fitness challenge

Started by Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, the Union Minister, this challenge aimed at raising the awareness of fitness. From India’s Prime Mister Modi to Bollywood stars such as Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma, and many others also took part in this fitness challenge. To take part in the challenge, people have to post their workout clips any social media platforms.
