I’ve always been a fan of political memes. When I had time to go over this New York Times article, it made me realize how quick our social media outlets make us form opinions that are based on memes and posts from places like Being Liberal or US Uncut. It’s almost as if Facebook has decided to takeover not just politics, but our opinions in general.

While I thought the article was too long and needed more videos or photos (memes) to help carry the message across, the writer John Herrman did a fantastic job of laying the groundwork and providing links to multiple sites that show how crazy politics on social media can be.

What he possibly could have done was create a Timeline to show when exactly this started to form (maybe around 2012) and how it has evolved since then.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
