Instagram is one of the fastest growing social media websites today. It’s also used by many people as a way to connect with people who share their interests. Using these features in a creative way, however, can result in some great Memes.
On Mothers Day, for example, I saw a post on Facebook that showed mothers holding a baby with a label reading “Happy Mother’s Day Mom.” The most common caption was “Moms Get 1 Free Gift,” with the photo of the label overlaid with pink hearts.
The result of this was an attractive photo of a cute infant. It had a happy expression on her face and was surrounded by pink flowers. For my readers, I added the caption “Mommy and the flowers,” the name of which I found on the Pinterest site “Life in a Box.” These two images combined brought back memories of my own young daughter, who was so excited to see the first pink flowers in her first room.
The most common strategy for making unique photos out of different meme ideas is to use color. Pink flowers make a great combination with yellow ribbons and yellow flowers. You could try using a photo of your loved one with yellow text over it, such as, “Happy Birthday to You Mom!” or just use your friend’s photo with the same yellow message, “Happy Birthday Mom!”
You could also use happy faces, instead of Mom and flowers. Or, do a baby and Mom using the same template as above, but replace the words with happy pictures. A funny face or funny joke image could be a good idea.
Another idea for Instagram memes is to combine pictures of a stuffed animal and a simple caption. The photo could also include the name of the stuffed animal.
Another funny meme idea uses pictures of kids together with the caption “Mom and Kids!” The picture could show the Mom holding a little boy who looks happy, as she has put a picture of herself and a little girl next to them.
Cute animals, though, don’t always work. If you want to include a cute animal, you may have to go to the animal website and download the photos and use the template, or just put a different animal in the background.
I had an old childhood photo on my computer and Alex McAfee had given me a new one of him at that age. Instead of my old photo, I put my new photo up and gave my old photo a funny caption.
I also made fun tattoos with the name of the song “I’m from the hood” on it. This is my first tattoo, so it was very cute.
If you want to be more creative with Instagram memes, you can use the service for other things, such as a response to a comment or a question you’ve been asked in a forum. To start a response, look for a photo that has a caption that you like, and add a picture of your opinion to it.
Your photo will be added to the feed as a response to a meme, thus creating a chain reaction of meme memes that will get your friends to interact with you. Since a lot of people find Instagram to be a fun way to connect with others, why not take advantage of it to attract more viewers and attract more customers?
