A three-minute video in which you can follow the fall of the Rage comics, the dominance of Ricardo Milos and the new king — the cat that women scream at.
Know Your Meme is the largest online library of online culture that describes the origin and distribution of memes, flash mobs, and viral videos. Since 2008, its creators have kept a database of memes and evaluate their popularity.
On January 10, 2020, the authors of Know Your Meme published a video infographic about how the most popular Internet memes changed from 2011 to the end of 2019. The basis of the data is site statistics by quarter. This three-minute video is a great way to remember how one or another trend replaced each other.
Something interesting that you can see on the infographic:
- The fall of Rage comics — the main format of the beginning of the last decade;
- Dog, known as Doge, dominated in 2013;
- Gamergate as an event in Internet culture that eclipsed memes for a while;
- The role of popular personalities in the meme community — the leadership was intercepted by the gorilla Harambe, then Belle Delphine;
