What are memes?
It is strange that at this point, and more if you are reading this article, you are wondering what is that of memes. But it is that, oddly enough, there is still some straggler in these parts of the internet.
The most correct way to define what a meme is would be that of a graphic content (be it a photograph, a video or a text) that represents a common idea by a group of people. This comes from the Greek word “mimema”, which meant “an imitated thing”, which represented a social idea that was transmitted. Although, within the scope of the internet and social networks, the meaning has just delimited a funny or comical idea that is transmitted throughout the network and that, normally, ends up being seen by millions of people. That is, it ends up becoming viral.
This has finally made memes that have become very popular. And you may be wondering, what is the reason for this virality / popularity? Well, although they are being studied by many professionals, some of the reasons could be:
- They are usually simple and easy to understand elements.
- On a social level, it is usually to the liking of most to share a comic moment with our close people. This helps the viralization of content supported by other social networks such as WhatsApp or Facebook.
- On many occasions, we tend to feel identified with the message they are trying to enact.
This is the “pretty” side of the coin but, like everything in life, it also has its negative side. On many occasions, some consciously and others unconsciously, memes are created that ridicule people or groups. This can be detrimental to those involved and even trigger certain problems.
So we don’t want to tell you that if you find a meme funny, don’t laugh. But try to put yourself in that person’s shoes if someone is involved and if, if you were in their shoes, you would like more people to see it.
