This gorgeous social network art series by Jon Lock turns popular social media sites into colorful manga characters. The series brings sites like YouTube, Twitter and Tumblr to life, turning them into stylish males.

Each personification is packed with personality and traits that are unique to each service. The animated human version of Instagram dons charming Hipster-like garments in brown and sepia tones that are reminiscent of the vintage-inspired filters used on the popular photo-sharing website.

In addition to personifying social media sites, the ongoing series by Lock also pits rivalling Internet browsers against one another, featuring favorites like Firefox and Google Chrome. Lock has hinted on his DeviantArt account that the next piece of personified social media art he will create will be for Pinterest.
