Throwback Thursday

noun; compounding
Throwback Thursday is the name of a weekly post theme that social media users participate in as part of a "throwback" activity for posting content. On Thursdays, people usually post photos on sites like Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook that are from the past. It is an Internet theme day observed on every Thursday during which people share an old photograph of themselves via social networking sites and image-sharing communities, most notably through photo-sharing mobile app Instagram.
 
It has been associated with things that are deemed classic or vintage since as early as 2003, when it was first defined on Urban Dictionary. The earliest known mention of “Throwback Thursday” can be found in the title of a series of revamped retro cartoon characters that were illustrated by animator Saxton Moore and uploaded onto his blog in January 2006.
Etymology : Compound of throw + back (as in the past) + the day of the week Thursday
Source : Online trend, first observed on Facebook around January 2013
