Meme Maker: The Ultimate Guide to Making Meme Images

Humans have an innate need to communicate, and the form of communication has evolved over the years. For example, back in caveman times, the people wrote symbols on the walls as their form of written communication. In some ways, this is similar to our usage of emoji today.

As social media developed, so did the way people chose to communicate. Sometimes words just aren't enough to get your point across, so people came up with a new way to express their thoughts. Thus, the meme was born.

What are memes?

A meme is an image that has text added to it that is posted online or sent over text. It often comments on cultural symbols, current events, or social ideas. Generally, a meme is a photo, but it can be just a big block of text. When people enjoy the meme, they continue to post it to social media like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. The more times it is spread, the more influence it has on culture.
