    " Mematic is an invaluable resource for making memes on the go. In the past, I'd usually have to use MS Paint on my laptop to make a quality meme worth sharing. Now I am able to create one quickly on my smartphone with this useful app. I can add captions to any picture (including my own) using many different stylish templates, which I can then share immediately on Facebook or Reddit."

    "I was aware of this particular resource for making a meme, because it tends to be the first to pop up in search results. It doesn't really do what I want it to do though - the style of memes that you can create with this generator aren't really all that popular anymore. I'm looking for something a little more modern in meme creation."

    "Creating memes is a blast using the Meme Factory app, some of the memes I created from using this app had my family and friends laughing. There were thousands of templates for me to choose from so getting started was very easy."

DID YOU KNOW

It was British evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins who coined the term ‘meme.’ In his 1976 book, The Selfish Gene, he used the word to pertain to the concept of the spread of cultural phenomena. ‘Meme’ is an abbreviated form of ‘mimeme,’ originating from the Greek word m?m?ma, which means ‘imitated thing.’ Dawkins meant for the concept of memes to be similar to the concept of genes, where successful ones remain in the meme pool, but those that are unfit are lost. Memes run the whole gamut from videos, images, illustrations, songs, dances… the list goes on and on. Nowadays, memes run rampant through the Internet, often shared from person to person as a vehicle for humor. Indeed, the spread of memes have been compared to the spread of viruses in a population, causing epidemics through the medium of the Internet. Memes have become so commonplace that the concept of “dank memes” has emerged as an ironic term for memes that are so overused that they become funny again. One classic example of an undying meme that turned dank is rick-rolling, the bait-and-switch prank where a video of Rick Astley’s 1987 song Never Gonne Give You Up is sent to a person instead of a link relevant to the conversation at hand. As a result, various copies of the song on the Internet have been racking up views from rick-rolled people.
