Would you want to know how you age ahead of time?

FaceApp is delighting and terrifying smartphone users in equal measure. Originally launched in 2017, the app houses a feature that modifies a user’s photo to determine what they’ll look like when they reach old age. Thus, the #FaceAppChallenge was born. Some find it funny; others would rather remain in the dark about their geriatric future. Would you want to know how you age ahead of time?

Playing around with FaceApp is all in good fun. People can use it for a variety of reasons: to find out what they look like as a young'un; how specific smiles look on their face; or even how they appear as another gender. Trying to find out how you age ahead of time is just another lighthearted, non-serious pastime (although whether or not it’s accurate is still up for debate). If anything about it is true, though, FaceApp pretty much confirmed Keanu Reeves is definitely a vampire

The core lesson of “Pandora’s Box” is often forgotten—there are some things better left unknown. Age comes for us all eventually. Why ruin the surprise? Better yet, why work yourself up into a paranoia? Not to mention there’s the concern that FaceApp is using your photos for nefarious purposes. But then again, what tech isn’t these days?
