Throwback Pictures

12-03-2019

This is me but on a good day!

‘Throwback’ photos are being used more and more in the media these days so it’s about time we had a look at what they are and how / why they are used.

In its simplest form, it’s a genuine photo of a celeb from either back in their hay day or as a child

 It can also be a Celeb that wants to flog something / show off / get some attention, so they dig out something as they haven’t got anything new to post and want some clicks

Sometimes it really is just a SLOOOW news day or the papers are in love with someone and are desperate for more pictures, even if the ‘Throwback’ was from a holiday they had already printed loads of picture from 3 weeks ago.

 But generally, it is just a Narcissistic way for someone to say LOOK AT ME I still look fantastic so you should follow and like me.  The #10YearChallenge that was all the rage on Instagram was a classic example, that MOST of the time was an excuse to try and trick people into thinking a Celeb hadn’t aged even if it is maintained with surgery and Photoshop

So, if you see a ‘Throwback’ or photo from ‘Back in the Day’ https://goo.gl/4nMfzd think about what the motivation for the publication or celeb posting it, and what they are getting out of it. 

It appears that most of the time it is motivated by lazy reporting to make an article or someone trying to trick you into thinking they haven’t aged a day
