The Meme Regime: A Gallery of Creativity from the Age of the Internet (Infographic)

“The Age of the Internet”: That’s how historians will describe the era we live in.

The Internet is how and where we do everything. Learning, shopping, news, entertainment, you name it: It’s all instantly available at the click of a button. Twenty years ago, that little piece of trivia on the tip of your tongue might drive you crazy all day long. Today, as quickly as you can pull your phone out of your pocket, the mystery is solved. One might argue that all of this convenience is making us lazy, but at Internet Marketing Ninjas, we like to think it just gives us more time for our creativity to flourish.

Since the early days of the Internet, creativity has been something that made it a truly special and unique place. An idea born in San Francisco could be elaborated on by someone in Tokyo and then further improved upon by someone in Sydney; with the power of the Internet, the potential for an idea is endless. This is where memes come in.

Memes certainly existed before the Internet: Remember the “Winnebago Man” outtakes that were copied and passed around on VHS tapes? But it’s with the Internet and websites like Reddit, 4chan, Tumblr, and YouTube that memes became something that are as easily accessible, editable, and shareable as they are today. This infographic, developed by the Ninjas Digital Asset Team, will take you on a stroll down meme-ory lane to examine our favorite memes of all time.

Not sure what memes are? No problem. This infographic will teach you everything you need to know before we get started.

    Hi Craig,
    I do also create infographic. So I know how cumbersome it is to research information for the infographic and to create the infographic using eye catchy graphics.

    You have collected 35 individual pieces of information and one integrated information. So it took a considerable amount of time to create the infographic.

    Thanks for coming up with this.

    As a confessed meme-junkie, I appreciate this article. I also create infographics for customers and in my experience, the data collection is the easy part! Getting that data to marry up with an attractive design to tell a story is the hard part (for me anyway). But, then again, difficult = competitive differentiation so I believe it’s time well spent.

    Nice article – keep up the good work!
