One of the latest trends on the internet is the creation and sharing of memes. If you have spent even a short amount of time online you will have definitely come across one.

The adding of captions to photographs of animals or humans, graphical drawings or just words themselves about random life events, very often become comical viruses and spread all over the world.

These cleverly designed concepts are everywhere. Memes. But how to do you pronounce meme?

What Is A Meme?

Historically, a meme was a 'bundle of information' that traveled by word of mouth. Typically it was a mesmerizing story, a joke, a fable or an expression of speech. Our use of them today is still common, yet today memes travel so much faster than speech alone.

Memes are shares via the internet. On a forwarded email, via instant messages and through social media. In the same way that a flu bug can travel from individual to individual, memes travel online.

Taking the form of photographs, videos and the simple written word, they can tell jokes, philosophical ideas worth repeating, urban legends and human and animal oddities.

They are very straight to the point and cleverly relate to people all over the world. This makes them popular for sharing on social networking sites and popular amongst pinners on Pinterest.
