Know your memes. A Study of internet virals.

November 15, 2009

Picture 3

I came across this site; Know Your Memes. It is really good, and a must see for people wanting to understand the cause and origins of online virals. I had a good time this sunday going through all these mini dokumentaries (about 4 mins a piece), giving me the back story on virals such as; the keyboard cat, starwars kid, rickrolls, lolcats, numa numa etc. They also coverd some virals that I hadn’t caught on before, which was very interesting. But what I found truly interesting was when they explained how the market and the media tried to get in on the virals and make a profit, and how this affected the different virals. For example the Christan Bale Rant. This viral was heavily pushed by the media and thus peaking very quickly but then again fading away equally fast. This shows that in this example, for a viral to be long lasting it has to come from a more underground independent source.

A must see, for all online marketing people.

Modernista did it a year ago, Skittles just done it! Done what? Made their brand sites out of other sites which already has the content. And Freddie at AdAge makes some fairly goods points. Its all sweet.

Some little bird once told me that internet users were tired of user generated content and that this years trend would be sites with professionally written content, that bird was obviously high.

Yes I know my browser has grown a bit top heavy…

I watcehd this video and then had a play with it. I was pretty blown away. I think it only works on PCs though, which is a shame. As you have to download a plugin to get it working.  Since I work on a PC at the office (shame)  I could play with it there. It’s still amazing just to watch the video. Someone at the office here was saying that this photosynth technology is possibly coming to Photoshop as a standard feature. Let’s hope so.

here is the link to the photosynth site:
