Poll Suggests 90% Of Voters Get Information Solely From Memes
Washington, D.C. – Researchers at Georgetown University have concluded that nearly 90% of American voters base their decision solely on internet memes. Memes are categorized as a humorous image, video, piece of text, or other format, that is copied (often with slight variations) and spread rapidly by internet users. Websites such as 4chan, Imgur, and Reddit have become ground zero for the creation of this content, with social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter being the catalyst for popular consumption.
“This alarming figure is the direct result of the technological age crossing paths with dysfunctional human behavior”, says Dr. Matthew Brown, Sociology Professor at Georgetown University. “We must attempt to arm ourselves with legitimate information and critical thinking”, a skill that Dr. Brown believes is quickly becoming extinct.
