The 10 year challenge is a trend on American social networking internet site Facebook[1] started in January 2019 in which people post one photograph from 10 years ago (2009) along side a more recent photograph.[2]

According to Rebecca Jennings of Vox Media, the trend is claimed to be a "ploy devised by Facebook to help train facial recognition algorithms on age progression".[3]
