Are you wondering why you’ve been seeing a good deal of old people photos on your social media feeds in recent weeks even if you don’t really follow a lot of old people online? If yes, then you have probably not heard of the #FaceAppChallenge yet.

FaceApp is a mobile application for both iOS and Android devices that use neural network technology to automatically generate highly realistic transformations of faces in photographs. Developed by Russian company Wireless Lab, the app allows users to add make-up, glasses, beards, and even smiles to faces in photos. The app can also change the hairstyle and hair color of people in pictures, switch their gender, and even make them look younger or older.

Launched in 2017, FaceApp went viral several times before, and it recently made the headlines once again when several people took part in the #FaceAppChallenge, in which they post photos of themselves with the app’s old-age filter. The challenge has become so popular on the Internet that even a slew of celebrities — actors, music artists, athletes, and reality stars — have also jumped on the bandwagon. Take a look at the slideshow above to see the jaw-dropping results of some your favorite stars’ #FaceAppChallenge.

Interesting facts about BTS
  • The group name, “BTS” stands for the Korean expression Bangtan Sonyeondan which translates to “Bulletproof Boy Scouts”. Band member J-Hope said that they chose this name because it represents BTS’s desire “to block out stereotypes, criticisms, and expectations that aim on adolescents like bullets.” But that isn’t the only meaning behind the name. In 2017, BTS said, as part of their new brand identity, that their name would also stand for Beyond the Scene” which extended their name to mean “growing youth BTS who is going beyond the realities they are facing, and going forward.”
  • BTS was originally intended to be a hip-hop group, similar to YG Entertainment’s 1TYM. This was because Big Hit Entertainment CEO Bang Si-hyuk met with RM and was very impressed by his rapping talents. However, Bang Si-hyuk changed his mind and decided that today’s youth needed “a hero who can lend them a shoulder to lean on, even without speaking a single word.”
  • BTS has said that all of the following musicians have inspired their music; Post Malone, Eminem, Seo Taiji and Boys, Nas, Kanye West, Drake, Charlie Puth, Danger, and Queen.
  • The band’s first English-language single, “Dynamite”, was released on August 21st. Its video broke the YouTube record for the most viewed music video premiere, grabbing the attention of three million viewers, and it set a new record for the most viewed video on the first day of release. “Dynamite” is also the first music video on YouTube to surpass 100 million views in less than one day.
  • BTS has been often labeled as “easily the biggest and most successful name in K-pop in the world” that can “do things no other name in their genre can.” Time magazine has gone as far as calling them the “Princes of Pop.”
