Charting the Most Popular Internet Memes (2004-2019)

Cary Huang of Abacaba compiled 15 years worth of internet memes into a really fun, slightly dizzying visualization that charts the most popular memes from 2004-2019. Huang referred to both Know Your Meme and Google Trends to gather historically accurate data around viewcounts and trends.

Don Caldwell, Editor-in-Chief of Know Your Meme, was very impressed with Huang’s visualization.
