MEMES: How to Master the World of Memes

writtenE

Memes. What a silly, confusing, curious word that has graced our most recent vocabulary and has taken over social media by a storm. Now, before I give you a solid “how-to” let’s just get one thing straight, PRONUNCIATION. If you want to understand this craze and perhaps use it on a regular basis in your conversations, then spare yourself the future embarrassment and learn how to speak meme. No, it is not “may-may” or “me-me”, not even close. This strange word is pronounced, “meem” and is responsible for the latest in pop-culture and political uproar. Powerful little stinker, huh?
“Emily, how do I meme? How do I keep up with the latest and greatest that is the cause of my peer’s laughter?” Well, it all takes a little bit of research, observance, and open-mindedness. A meme starts out as something small and when it’s good (and I mean really good) it dines with the social trinity. It devours a full course meal with Twitter, makes its’ way to Instagram for dessert, and then settles in for the night at Hotel Facebook.
Memes must be used correctly. Each visual interprets a particular situation and lets the reader know how to take the statement. Most of the time it is with a grain of salt and other times it brings a reality check and a thoughtful pause. Let me give you guys some visuals of past memes.
