Memes are a subculture of their own and they reflect the current trend or set a new one. Most memes are a result of a social media user’s creativity but rarely is the user a world-renowned celebrity like singer Dolly Parton.
They are usually shared on social media, and all of us have different social media accounts on various platforms. Different accounts on different platforms reflect a particular personality of ours and this has been encapsulated by the Dolly Parton Challenge (#DollyPartonChallenge).
Dolly Parton shared a photo or rather a collage of photos depicting different personas on various platforms. The collage consists a 4-way grid of her photos on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Tinder.
The LinkedIn profile is more of a professional platform where formal pictures are shared, Facebook is for friends and family, Instagram is where the photos become more expressive and more attractive and dare, we say, bold pictures are shared on Tinder.
The original post was made by Parton on 21 January and it became a viral sensation within a few days. From common people to celebrities everyone seems to do the challenge.
Some of the biggest celebrities to do the challenge and post it on social media are Kerry Washington, Janet Jackson, Mark Ruffalo, Mindy Kaling, Jimmy Kimmel, Sarah Michelle Gellar among others.
