Fluff And Nonsense

Surveys, jokes, lists of trivia, brain-teasers, apparently odd stories, if the causes, political, inspirational or urban legend memes don't get you re-sharing, these generally light-hearted ones probably do. They don't use guilt or alarm to get us re-sharing, instead, they work on our positive emotions, so we do whatever we're told without even realizing or caring that we've fallen for a meme.

And there are people who actually get all offended when these meme re-shares don't get them the wonderfully positive feedback they were expecting. I've been screamed at on email lists for debunking jokes. I've been hollered at via private email by somebody who thought the joke meme they sent would get them a huge lol from me, and my reaction was a link to TruthOrFiction debunking the inaccuracy of the story.

Though less have-handed in their approach at getting us to re-share, these memes are still annoying because they are memes. They're everywhere, and any that pro-port to contain info and stats can be just as inaccurate as the slactivism and all the rest.
