Internet memes are online images typically made up of text placed on top of a photograph. The nature of these memes is usually humorous and meant as a way to engage people. While memes can be funny, they can range anywhere from sad, serious, political, or edgy. Memes have become quite popular as a way for people or businesses to get people’s attention.
Memes are typically shared online on social media platforms. When a meme gets shared a lot online and is viewed many times, it can go viral. This means it spreads well beyond its original online posting. As the meme gains momentum, more and more people share and reshare the meme on a large scale.
While memes could be used to simply tell jokes or poke at certain issues, they could also be used to promote an individual, business, or concept. Such memes may attract a certain online demographic, helping to attract the attention of like-minded groups. This, in turn, may lead to discovering new friends online, gaining more followers, or possibly an online conversion. Through these chain of events, it then becomes possible for an individual or a business to communicate their ideas, products, or services in a non-aggressive, lighthearted, and amusing way.
