Why Do People Like Memes? | Top 19 Reasons Why Memes Are Popular

MEMES – people love them!!! What is a meme? These are the “snarky” & funny pictures I post on Facebook, Twitter, Social Media and this blog. We are all a bit lazy (not you of course) and need instant gratification whether it is in work, relationships, dating, or even our social media consumption. Most people don’t like to read, so putting a thumbs up on a meme is so much easier than doing anything else like uh, ……reading? It’s ok – my Facebook wouldn’t be as fun without them. I have noticed some trends with the meme community.

People love to stare at pics with minimal words about:

1. Puppies – duh? Ever take advertising 101 or watched the Super Bowl?

2. Babies – no shit? Actually, a lot of shit (I heard). Tweet This
