Facebook: Yearbook Photo’s so Yesterday, Manga’s so Today

September 15, 2008

A couple weeks ago, the latest Facebook craze was getting your (or your friends or enemies’) photos re-done at YearbookYourself. And now that fad’s gone, and we’ve got a new fad.

At YearbookYourself, happy campers put their face (beautiful or otherwise) into different photos from the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, 1980’s, and 1990’s. Different apparel, hairstyles, and accessories through the decades can be seen, and people had a blast finding which hairstyle looked the funniest on these photos. And then folks made those photos their profile photos.

Here’s my favorite (thanks so much, Drago – I think!) — something from the 1980’s:

But YearbookYourself is so yesterday. Today’s new rage? FaceYourManga. You get to create a “comic-book” avatar using dozens upon dozens of tools — and it’s very likely that you’d be able to make an avatar that looks much like you. Or an unflattering one of your enemy.

Here’s my avatar. I absolutely love it.

By the end of the week, FaceYourManga will be so yesterday too. What’s tomorrow? I don’t know – stay tuned …

(Thanks, Adam and Drago, for pointing me toward this!)
