YASSification is the biggest trend sweeping across the internet

As someone who is extremely online, this means that I am constantly updated with viral trends across all platforms. Instagram, TikTok, Twitter – you name it. I live on the internet.

One of the latest social media phenomena sweeping twitter has become an instant favorite. It’s simple, it’s fun, and most importantly, it’s it yassified.

What started as a meme that turned a screenshot of a screaming Toni Collete from A24 horror movie Hereditary into an Instagram-ready baddie now sweeping the internet. It was the catalyst that just a new name for “glow-up”. The Twitter account @yassifybot, which – you guessed it – yassifies photos of celebrities and characters using an application called Faceapp, has already garnered over 80,000 followers.

The beauty of this internet trend is that anyone can be yassified. It’s basically a glow-up, a transformation that would make most people go “yassss”, and therefore it’s proof that we live on top of the internet.

No one is secured against yassification. @Yassifybot has transformed everyone from Tom Holland to Dobby from the Harry Potter movies and even Jesus. So I bet you all ask, can something be yassified? The answer is yes.

To achieve full yassification, users can edit and filter their skin to perfection using Faceapp – an app that is literally built to filter out every bug. The app can even change your entire look, show how you look like different genders, like baby and more. Looking past the funny phenomenon of yassification, it is a frightening reflection of where our current societal beauty standards lie and how much we see in the media is false.

If we need apps like Faceapp as well as Facetune where your whole face can look perfect in seconds, then how will we ever be able to tell when something is not natural? If all the images we are served daily are always edited and filtered to perfection, then how will we ever be familiar with reality?

Filtered images are nothing new. With Instagram, most of the photos we see have been altered in one way or another, and they are often shot with perfect lighting, the best cameras, and with good angles. It is impossible to always look like the images we see, but our brains simply cannot understand it.

It’s a pretty dark reality we live in, and the vitality of yassification is a nice break. It shows the extremity of these apps and how much they can change someone’s appearance, which is why they’re so funny.

In honor of my favorite social media trend this year, I have gathered some of the best yassifications here.

If you want to make your own, they can be made using Faceapp. But you have to pay for it, but I think it’s a good investment. Thank us later.
