The What Meme: Making the Internet Memorable
The What Meme is rapidly becoming one of the most popular ways to communicate on the Internet. A large number of net users are posting humorous or controversial messages in online forums and discussion pages, as well as participating in live conversations in chat rooms. This quick, casual approach to communication is currently the fastest-growing type of communication on the Internet. Before What Meme, people conveyed humor, cartoons, political views, and other more formal types of messages through longer formats of communication.
Basically, an Internet Message is a form of content that is sent or given through an Internet messaging system. An Internet Meme, more accurately, is a kind of cultural icon, concept, or behavior that is transferred through the Internet, most often through online social network sites and particularly for humorous purposes. Generally, when you have a What Meme, you’re having somebody post a piece of information or a piece of entertainment either for fun or for profit. Before Meme, users could generally only send a message to other members of the community with the intent of either asking a question or informing the community of something new. Now, however, users can communicate with each other on The What Meme site in much the same way that people would use any other type of online message board.
One of the most unique aspects of Meme is that users can post any type of cultural icon, whether it is a political comic book, music, TV show, or film characters, and the How Meme site will quickly recognize this and deliver a response. Of course, the How also hopes to filter out certain types of content before it is made available to other members, but the quick nature of the site makes it difficult for The What to do so. Instead, The What tries to identify as much cultural content as possible so that it can continually deliver a response to users that are posting on the board. In essence, is trying to do what the old joke said about getting an earful of everything at all times, just in a less obnoxious form.
