This story should bring back a lot of memories.
Just about every high school senior buys a yearbook.
But what is a popular way to capture the past may be becoming a thing of the past.
We picked Salem High School because the yearbook staff recently won an award for having one of the best yearbooks in the country.
Believe it or not, yearbooks are not as popular as they once were and it's because of Facebook.
The yearbook: it's a time to reminisce when many of us had big hair. Or in WDBJ7 anchor Holly Pietrzak's case, big wavy hair. Or in this reporter's case, as you can see by the picture, a good old fashioned crew cut. Don't laugh.
When the yearbook staff here at Salem High School isn't laughing at me, it is busy putting the finishing touches on this year's yearbook.
Increasingly, yearbook sales are down at some high schools nationwide because of the popularity of Facebook.
"I think it may have some ground but I know a lot of people who value having something they can hold forever," Lord Botetourt High School senior Halle Edwards said.
But some say social media gives students immediate access to photographs of many of the same events usually included in a yearbook.
Let's face it, every teen is on Facebook.
"I know whenever I have a chance, I'm always on Facebook," Salem High School senior Austin Rakes said.
Yearbook sales haven't declined at Salem High School or Lord Botetourt High School.
A yearbook publisher tells WDBJ7 sales have taken a hit at Patrick Henry High School and William Fleming High School in Roanoke, and he believes social media is partly the reason why.
Advisors at area high schools say a computer isn't the same as a hardcover book.
"I feel like on Facebook you can go on and look at pictures on a daily basis but you don't have that historic document that you can keep with you," Salem High School yearbook advisor Katie Lewis said.
"Yearbook is something that encompasses everything," Jessica Curulla, Lord Botetourt's yearbook advisor said. "It goes over the entire school. There's not one group or class that's excluded we try to include everybody."
Some publishers have started digital yearbooks.
Jostens even has a cool APP that allows you to take a picture and then insert yourself into different poses throughout the decades.
