Internet memes seem like a distraction and a waste of time. But are images that state the obvious and be overly blunt hurting or helping? It comes down to being yet another new form of expression, changing social behavior and how we interact with each other.
What are Internet Memes and Why You Should Care
An internet meme is a cultural phenomenon, spreading like a virus, traveling from one person to another swiftly until it takes on a life of its own. “Meme’ is pronounced as ‘meem’, which rhymes with ‘seem’ or ‘team’. Meme is a term coined by Richard Dawkins.
Internet memes are usually jokes, urban legends, viral videos, funny pictures or contagious music. Memes today hugely influence modern language and culture. They shape how the youth, and the whole internet user population for that matter, live their lives.
Marketing, advertising and promotions professionals embrace internet memes, because it’s inexpensive and trendy; plus its unique characteristic is to spread like a virus.
