Memes propagate themselves…
But before we further explore this, WhaT Is AcTuaLLy a MeMe?????
What every teenager considers a meme- “they tagged me in a meme on Facebook, I reacted”
What every teenager in BCM 112 actually learned- Memes are “ideas, actions, and perceptions that spread from mind to mind”.
(My Gifs aren’t marvel related at all…)
Back onto the propagation…
A great example, PEPE!!!!!!
The Pepe meme was and is still living, but otherwise, the entire process behind Pepe explains propagation.
It started out as a small image in a cartoon and now Pepe himself can be anything you want, a cat, a crying student, Sir Donald Trump…you get it.
Not only, Pepe, there are now hundreds of meme formats that have further developed and propagated, but it is Meme Warfare where all the propaganda happens, its all about perception if we don’t like a meme it simply becomes FaKe NeWs.
