Definition of: Internet meme

An image, video, story or joke that is voluntarily passed from one Internet user to another via e-mail, blogs and social networking sites. Considered a form of art, Internet memes are created to promote individuals, groups, movies, art, music and products, as well as to perpetrate a hoax or just be funny. They can disappear in days or last for years.

I think the word "meme" first came from the Richard Dawkins book "The Selfish Gene."
