A meme (pron. meem) is a concept/ cultural unit of information that spreads from person to person via the Internet.
The concept of a ’meme’ was defined and described by Richard Dawkins in his 1976 book ‘The Selfish Gene’, as an attempt to explain the way cultural information spreads through our culture in a similar manner to genes through a family.
