Now in today’s society, there are more memes used with social media. Especially the new app TikTok is an app that is used for sharing videos and dances however there are many different types of videos. For example, there are educational, cooking, makeup tutorials, and even memes. Depending on what you like and scroll onto your feed can show different things. In today’s society, there is a rising of “dark humor” where it takes serious topics and makes a meme out of them.
