A blank example of an internet 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. Dead memes, however, can become dank memes if used properly.

Some websites where internet memes can be shared include Reddit, 4chan, 9gag, IFunny. A popular chatting service where internet memes can be shared is Discord, an instant messaging and communication platform.
