You know the feeling of rediscovering your old the pinch-too-small Manolo Blahnik pumps in your decades-old closet or the taste of a favorite, mouth-watering cheesecake u haven’t had in years since you last went on sugar-free dietary protest? Well, I had this very feeling and taste when I found my social studies teacher from 8th grade on Facebook.

Don’t believe me? Take a look at this remarkable video that shows the power of social media and that it’s here to stay.
