Social media memes create a powerful, simple way for social media users to instantly connect on a topic near and dear to them. For example, as the date for the SCOTUS ruling on DOMA and Prop 8 neared, more and more people adopted this Facebook meme to show their support for same-sex marriage. According to HRC:
Facebook saw a 120 percent increase in profile photo updates on Tuesday, March 26 when compared to the previous Tuesday, which kicked off around the time we began urging followers to change their photos. Given the number of remixes and logo variants, Facebook's data shows just the tip of the iceberg of the impact of the campaign.
When I saw HRC's meme show up on dozens then hundreds of friends Facebook pages, I cried! I had no idea so many souls were in support of something I hope to be one day - a gay married man. This meme instantly told me there's more support out than than I realized. This meme flooded into thousands of sites that uses Facebook's comment application. The power of social memes to share a simple message is here to stay.
