In recent years, the artform of memes has taken the internet by storm. People share memes to express how they feel, to make each other laugh, and to comment on politics, spirituality, and culture. In a world that is increasingly divided – both by distance and ideology – memes are one of the only things bringing people together.
You don’t have to make memes to learn from them. Understanding the science of memes will help you become a better writer, drive awareness to your cause, or market your product or service. A meme is any idea that spreads. These insights are helpful for anyone looking to share a message, especially on social media.
