MemeBase chronicles the evolution of memes and its impact on the world.

MemeBase tracks how Internet Culture and memes affect and change popular culture and in turn how popular culture affects the meme. MemeBase builds on the work of Encyclopedia Dramatica and Know Your Meme. MemeBase believes that while chronicling the origin is important, tracking and recording the changes and evolution is just as important in understanding how memes and viral content shape the Internet.

What MemeBase tracks:

1. Definition of memes, viral content and Internet Culture icons.

2. Appearance of memes and viral content in popular culture (TV, mainstream media, advertising, etc.)

3. The changes and the influence of memes on the world.
