This week is doppelganger week on Facebook. What the hell is that?
“Doppelganger week! During Doppelganger week change your facebook profile picture to some famous celebrity such as a famous musician, actor, or athlete that you have been told that you look like…. and repost this message.”
Doppelganger week is a Facebook meme where users update their profile photo to be a celebrity that they’ve been told they look like, or a celebrity that they think they look like. Cute game eh? Jared Newman at PC World doesn’t think so, calling it narcissism exposed.
To me, it seems like a harmless game. I like the concept better than the multitude of annoying quizzes and chain status updates/notes (post this or you die) that rear their ugly head on Facebook.
I’ve been told that I look like Michael C. Hall (of Dexter fame), Adrian Grenier (of Entourage fame) and a few others. I decided to go with Adrian Grenier since I’ve heard that one the most often.
A Facebook fan page for Doppelganger week has even popped up onto the scene. This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone, as there’s a fan page for just about everything else in the world.
What do you think of doppelganger week?
