Everyone has been a part of circulating popular Internet memes at one point or another. Whether it’s an RT on Twitter or a shared post on Facebook, popular Internet memes spread around social media like wild fire. What exactly is a meme though?

This infographic defines a meme as a cultural idea spread virtually among people on the net. Internet memes are often funny commentary on popular culture figures and issues. A perfect example of this happened when Mitt Romney made his now-famous comment about having "binders full of women." Once Romney dropped that gem in a Presidential debate, people all over the Internet went nuts creating memes about it. Then, Tumblr and Twitter accounts dedicated to the phrase popped up, which provided a space on the net specifically created to perpetuate memes about the statement.
