A meme is an idea, expression, person (or animal), that spreads rapidly through culture and the world. MEME’s are also like viral videos, except that a meme can also be a picture, a message, or an expression.
Why are MEME’s important to us marketers? MEME’s represent our society’s collective interests. MEME’s are social proof on what types of content appeal to a mass audience. It’s hard to put a logical reason why some MEME’s get ridiculously popular so the right thing to do is to just accept its appeal factor and ride its current popularly.
