HISTORY OF MEMES:

HISTORY OF MEMES A meme is defined as a video, photo, quote, text, or something similar that has come out of nowhere to the Internet. According to dippity.com it is said that the first memes were created in the early 1990’s, and have progressed ever since. One of the earliest and most often used memes created in 1998 was titled “All your base are belong to us” and it was a gif that was created about a Japanese video game “Zero Wing”. By the end of that year the meme craze had began and memes could be seen everywhere. Many different memes are taking over the Internet today including “ Sh*t people say ” and the “ Harlem shake ” videos.

OUR OWN MEME:

OUR OWN MEME Who doesn't ’ t hate receiving a paper with an IP grade? Memes usually cover topics that help people relate to one another. We found that both of us thought the meme was funny and that we could both easily relate to it. Finding common ground is an important part of creating memes, whether the meme covers current events, or things that happen to people in their own lives. We think the key purpose of memes is for humor and creates an easy way for people to learn about current events that they may have had no interest in previously.
