The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines meme as “an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture”. It further describes A meme “as an amusing or interesting item (such as a captioned picture or video) or genre of items that is spread widely online especially through social media”. Some people describe memes as a way to express themselves in messages. A message almost is not complete without a meme attached to it.
People make memes for a number of reason. Maybe they want to make a point with their friends but does not want it to be too serious. So they end the message with a meme so it does not come across as too heavy. Others in social media use memes to make a political point and make it viral. When a post has a funny meme, people share it and thus making the message spread across the interweb. This is also a good reason why companies promoting events use memes. They spread like wildfire. But a really good reason people make memes is to just poke fun at your friends, coworkers, bosses, neighbors and even yourself.
What defines a great meme? It has to be catchy, relatable, replicable, and most of all fun.
