You might be looking for the general usage of Meme
An internet meme is something famous on the internet such as an image, a video, or even a person. Internet memes are usually created when someone published something and that thing was shared widely over the Internet. They sometimes consist of an image with top and bottom text. While spreading over the internet, most internet memes 'evolve' over time, with the original image/video being changed in one way or another by people other than the creator. Every internet meme evolves and has many variants. See: Memes
Two other versions of Internet memes are "dank memes" and "dead memes". Dank memes are thought of as relevant and funny. Dead memes are thought of as not relevant or not funny, most of which haven't been uses in months or years. Dead memes, however, can become dank memes if used properly.
Some websites where internet memes can be shared include Reddit, 4chan, 9gag, and IFunny. A popular chatting service where internet memes can be shared is Discord, an instant messaging and communication platform. Memes on Discord are shared through images, videos, and gifs, although these methods aren't only limited to Discord.
Types of Memes[change | change source]
There are many different types of internet memes. They include the following types.
Ironic Meme[change | change source]
An ironic meme is a meme that uses intentionally bad, unfunny, or low-quality content to joke about said content. Some parodies could also be called ironic memes, but those are another thing entirely.
Absurd Meme[change | change source]
An absurd meme is a meme that makes no sense, similar to an Ironic Meme. Absurd memes, however, are usually very strange, involving seemingly random concepts that have been established in internet culture.
Video Meme[change | change source]
A video meme is a meme spread through video sharing sites such as YouTube, Vimeo, and Twitch. Short videos can also be shared on social media services that supports video, such as TikTok, Reddit, and Facebook
