Your Index Finger Will Tell You If You’re Beautiful Or Not

May, 02, 2014: If you come across any online photos of your friends with their index finger placed against the chin and nose, don’t be alarmed. They are probably doing the “finger trap test”.

The hottest social media craze and the latest way to determine a person’s beauty is the “finger trap test”.

All you have to do is place your index finger against the chin and nose to see if your lips touch it. If they do, then you're officially a good-looking person. If they don't, then maybe it’s just better to ignore it altogether.

The trend emerged from China’s Twitter like social media website Weibo where, instead of the “thigh gap” phenomenon, people are using the finger trap test to measure the standard of attractiveness, according to Vocativ.com.

“On Weibo, the Chinese Twitter-Facebook hybrid, thousands of users, including celebrities, have posted photos of themselves doing what literally translates to the Beauty and Ugliness Identification Method,” the website states.

Although the test has no scientific basis, it is said to be loosely based on the 3:1 ratio theory used by cosmetic surgeons to determine facial symmetry and proportions.

It’s basically another silly version of “Hot or Not”.
