The Paris Hilton Meme

A very good question: Why hasn’t the Paris Hilton meme died yet?? For more, read this article in Wired. Memes are a very interesting concept. As someone who is passionate about communication and how we are able to connect to our family, our friends, our co-workers and our market, the meme study is very compelling. Going back to my post on social sites and their long memory, I think it’s smart to apply this information.

You can control it only in the very beginning, but then like a virus, the meme spreads of its own accord, growing without any direct guidance. Can you imagine the picture you paint of yourself on Facebook spreading like that? An idea that takes on a life of its own and if you weren’t honest or you were TOO honest, you are left with nothing but regret.
