Did you know that there is a scientific study conducted on the popularity of memes? Researchers from four universities teamed up in search of the internet's most prominent memes. Across three known websites with memes; 4chan, Twitter, and Reddit, different memes emerged. The researchers monitored memes posted from July 2016 to July 2017. They observed that the 4chan group /pol/ has more racist and political memes. Whereas Twitter and Reddit have more fun memes on their platform. The most popular memes on each platform at the time were the Feels Bad Man, Manning Face, and Roll Safe. It's safe to say that we live in an era of memes. Whether it be videos, catchphrases or anything under the sun.
Memes have become a massive part of the internet culture and spread in many ways. That is why that it comes to no surprise that a lot of people engage in sending memes. Memes can be either political, dank, or funny, it's all up to preference. Anyone can generate memes through apps that can make memes, but to make it funny is up to the audience. Not all memes capture one's mind. This is another challenge a meme creator must overcome. How does one capture the essence of a good and interesting meme?
