Dalgona Coffee

Dalgona Coffee is one of the most visible and deliciously consumable phenomena as the planet was forced to take a quarantine in order to avoid a full-blown explosion of coronavirus pandemic. It looked like spotless coffee took over social media overnight. Netizens across the globe hopped on the trend, but later they noticed that coffee had to be made without an electronic whisk.

Pillow challenge

On 5 April, Instagram users @styledbynelli and @myforteisfashion began the popular quarantine pillow challenge. The job was to wear a pillow with a strap on your body.

This theme spread to social media like flames and a number of popular A-lists even had a chic look. This assignment is a great demonstration of how imaginative people should be quarantined.

This trend requires no introduction, for 'Binod' was the most used word in August 2020. This trend was not necessary. It all began with an innocent 'Binod' comments on the video of Slayypoint and the Indian social media went out of the blue!

·      Several authors began to create original material around it and we even saw several major companies making funny tales.

·      This was so common that you definitely live under the rock without understanding what 'Binod' is!



Black and white picture challenge

This was another theme which became really popular online in 2020 and for all the right reasons. The challenge of black and white was gathering momentum among women worldwide.

The goal was to inspire women and demonstrate mutual support. All they had to do was write 'challenge acknowledged' and tag other women in their messages. There were many factors for this challenge, but we appreciate how many women have taken it on and shown its solidity.
