A meme is a piece of media, such as an image, video, hashtag, or hyperlink, that spreads through the Internet and goes viral. The most popular form of meme is an image with humorous text.
Memes have become extremely popular due to the rise in social media and mobile device use. As people are on their devices more, they consume a lot of content and share things they like quicker. Another reason that memes are popular is that they are interactive. You can create your own memes from scratch or variations of memes posted by other Internet users.
