Popular memes on Facebook are often variations of themes and templates. After all, it's Facebook users -- some with more creativity than others -- that create the memes.
What are Facebook memes?
Cartoons, pictures, quotes and jokes are all a way of expressing and passing along cultural ideas. These images often go "viral" in that they are shared widespread throughout Facebook (the second largest website in the world) and blogs.
Memes take the form of images: photos with quotes, cartoons, inspirational quotes, political satire, humorous images, educational graphs, original art and more.
Memes reproduce and mutate.
This list identifies just some of the templates commonly used by Facebook meme generators. There are common themes such as political satire and inspirational quotes by historical figures, as well as templates such as twists on popular movie characters.
Some of the Facebook memes are funny, some are inspirational, some annoying, and some are educational.
Feel free to take some of the ideas to make your own Facebook memes or cartoons. Use the templates and make your own twist on them. You can make them with software programs like Photoshop or GIMP if you have the software and the patience to learn how to use it.
