Are Social Media Memes Overrated?

An interesting discussion has arisen in the Cre8asite Forums where a member asks about the benefit of memes.

What's a meme, you may ask?

These are the "Why I Blog?", "My Favorite Charity", etc. blog posts that list the site owner's thoughts and then they tag others to continue the discussion.

Lately, a lot of interesting memes have arisen. There was the first one that I participated in which asked 5 things that you don't typically know about me. After that, there was the Why I Blog meme. I've been tagged by a few other memes, including in a "what offline magazine publications do you read?" and "what charities do you give to?" and I'm a bit overwhelmed.

I'm not alone.

Other Cre8asite Forums members feel similarly. Many feel that "after the first few memes they lose their appeal." As for me, I'm not sure if I am bored by memes, but I certainly feel an obligation to comply with the requests, even when I'm not sure what to say!

What do you think? Discussion continues at Cre8asite Forums.
