Myspace is dead and, with it, tacky personalized backgrounds, GIF-like comments and the pain of being removed from someone's top 5.
Instead of evolving from these frightful fads, all other social networks have served host to one trend that survived the Myspace disaster of '07-'08: the signature "Myspace pose." It's like a genetic defect passed down in a display of social network Darwinism gone wrong. So wrong.
Check out these signature moves that still plague our feeds (unfortunately):
The Mirror Shot
The Duck Face
The Bend & Lean
The Peace Sign, Shocker, Hang-Ten and Every Other Awful Hand Gesture That Needs To Stay Out of the Frame
The We-Don’t-Even-Know-What-To-Call-It Face
The Mean Mug
The Chicken Wing
The Heavy Vignette
The Barbie Doll
The Sepia Filter
The Panting Dog
Our last image features a nice combination of the leg lift, duck face and mirror selfie-- but for future generations: please leave grandma out of this.
