A meme “is an activity, concept, catchphrase, or piece of media that spreads, often as mimicry or for humorous purposes, from person to person via the Internet” (wikipedia). If you’ve been on social media in the past five years, you’ve probably seen a meme. Think Ryan Gosling saying “hey girl…”; Keep Calm and —; The toddler dancing on stage in a costume while in tears with some sort of caption– these are all memes.
Memes require individuals to distill information and pair words with images in a compelling way. In a digitally mediated culture like ours, concise language in a visually appealing package attracts readers and engages them more than simple text online.Bad-Girls-of-the-Bible-Meme-Assignment-1
