One of the biggest American pop groups One Direction returned to Social Media for the first time in four years, celebrating 10 years of being together. The boy band shared a post via the group’s official iInstagram account that read, “10 Years of One Direction.” In the caption, the members wrote, “Tomorrow! You and me got a whole lot of history.”
Needless to say, fans are pretty excited, especially considering One Direction hadn’t posted anything on Instagram since May 2016 (when the artists promoted a Family Guy cameo). “AM I DREAMING!?” The last time One Direction had tweeted anything was in 2018, when it celebrated the group’s eight-year anniversary and they are currently trending.
The posts came on the eve of the band’s 10-year anniversary. The group is marking the major milestone in a big way, too. From releasing a 10-year celebration video and dropping a 1D anniversary website to having interactive playlists and sharing activations across digital platforms, the stars—Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik—are providing a number of ways for fans to enjoy the special moment.
In 2010, the five singers appeared on The X Factor and were put together to form the group One Direction. They went on to release a number of hits, including “What Makes You Beautiful,” “Story of My Life” and “Best Song Ever.” Then, in 2015, Malik announced he was leaving the band. Later that year, Styles, Tomlinson, Horan and Payne said they had made the decision to take an extended “hiatus.” All of the members then went on to launch solo careers. However, the love for the group remains strong.
