Doppelgänger Week occurs during the first week of February, starting on a Sunday and ending on a Saturday. It is an internet meme in which users of social networking websites change their profile picture to that of celebrities, athletes, historical figures, or friends with whom they share a physical resemblance. The meme started in 2010.[1]

Although it was reportedly started by Bob Patel,[2] who was constantly told by workmates that he looks like Tom Selleck, the earliest record of Doppelgänger Week can be found on Facebook's Doppelgänger Week Page.[3]
