Spiral Guide to Meme
 

Authored by Mr Jag S

This book serves as a introductory guide to Meme and its applications. The evolutionary principles of Meme are discussed in detail in this book. This spiral guide to Memes explains how memes work, how they spread, and what memes tell us about how we make sense of our world.
The discipline of memetics, which originated from the mid 1980s, provides an approach to evolutionary models of cultural information transfer based on the concept of the meme function the same way genes and viruses do, propagating through communication networks and direct contact between individuals. Richards Dawkins defined the Meme as a unit of cultural transmission, or a unit of imitation and replication. Meme spread through the behaviors they generate in their hosts. Meme that propagate less prolifically may become extinct, while others may survive, spread, and mutate. Meme refers to a core value system, acting as an organizing principle. Meme expresses itself as self-propagating ideas, habits, or cultural practices. The mimetic approach is a tool that helps us to understand certain aspects of human behavior.
Public relations, advertising, and marketing professionals have embraced internet Meme as a form of viral marketing to create marketing buzz for their products or services. Internet Meme are seen as cost-effective technique to create an image of novelty and trendiness. Network effects proliferate in the business world. Organizations develop network overlays in the form of networks and markets. Meme takes advantage of these network features, and in due course the age of memetics are ingrained firmly. The networks transcend geographical and cultural boundaries. Meme leverages existing social networks by encouraging customers, vendors, dealers, agents and other stakeholders to share product information. Using Meme for focused and targeted marketing is advantageous to both the merchant and the consumer, who would benefit from learning about new products.
This book serves as an introductory guide to Meme and its types. The evolutionary principles of meme are discussed with explaining the spread of ideas and cultural phenomena. This spiral guide to Meme explains how Meme work, how they spread, and transmit. Meme are defined as cultural analogues to genes.
