A Great Meme For Social Media Engagement

Updated on April 11, 2018

If you're like me, you have a few social media accounts. If you're also like me, the amount of human interaction you glean from having those accounts is on the low to nil end of the scale.

That being said, I recently came across a meme in Facebook and decided it would be interesting to repost it and see who was creative based on what it asked. It's been a few days now, and people from my past are still posting fun and entertaining comments.

So if you're looking to hear from some old friends and acquaintances via social media, steal the following photo, post it, and sit back and watch the interaction ensue.

Interaction Summary

While only twenty-one people actually 'liked' the post, the comments section of this meme generated 156 responses over a two-day span. And it's not really slowing down.

Family comments on the posts of other family, friends who you know don't know each other sound like old best friends. There are songs from various generations and ways of looking at them that completely changes what the artist was actually trying to say that makes it completely hilarious.

Some Creative Examples
