How to spot a viral meme on the internet
On Sunday night, MTV News published a story titled “It’s a Trap,” which featured a picture of a woman’s headless body.
“We’re not sure what to make of it, but we are definitely looking at it,” MTV’s senior writer for social media Ben Kuchera wrote.
“It may be a hoax or a photo, but it’s a meme.”
He continued: “If you’re going to post a picture that says ‘it’s a trap,’ please do it on the Internet.”
