The word Meme (pronounced "meem") was coined in 1976 by biologist Richard Dawkins. According to his book, The Selfish Gene, a meme "refer{s} to any cultural entity that an observer might consider a replicator..." Of course, Wikipedia defines it more simply, as "how cultural information spreads on the internet."Businesses are just beginning to learn how to use these powerful tools. Memes are often used to create market buzz online. Some memes have been known to go from one viewer to 40,000 in less than a week. The business that knows how to properly use memes can gain exposure not possible through traditional marketing methods.
