Popular Social Media Trends: Memes
Before, memes were limited to meme accounts on social media. That’s all changing as many brands now use memes to make relatable and shareable content for their pages.
Some examples of popular memes include:
Collage-style images with ‘starter packs’ – e.g. the lockdown summer starter pack (banana bread, Yoga with Adriene and other lockdown popular activities – add in a pair of sunglasses for good measure!)
Relatable memes – e.g. I can’t find my glasses because I can’t see without my glasses
Popular culture references – using photos from popular culture to represent your funny message.
The benefit of meme posts:
- Highly sharable
- Highly relatable
- Used for humour
Here’s another example on a controversial topic from earlier on in the year:
