The Know Your Meme Mission
Know Your Meme is a community blog and a web database that researches and documents Internet memes and viral phenomena.
Founded in December of 2008, Know Your Meme's research is handled by an independent professional editorial and research staff and community members. In just a short 2-year period, the site grew to reach more than 2.5 million people every month and is considered the most authoritative source on news, history and origins of viral phenomena and Internet memes.
We're part of the Cheezburger Network, one of the world's largest online humor and entertainment destination with dozens of sites including I Can Has Cheezburger?, FAIL Blog, Memebase, and The Daily What.
