Originally, Facebook adopted the wall metaphor to label the space where people could post their thoughts and messages. This has now been replaced by a timeline, but many postings are still humorous. Humour is extremely pervasive in Britain. The British are able to joke at times and in places where ludic behaviour would be inappropriate in other cultures. Joking comes to the British as second nature. However, graffiti are a more fitting comparison because, like internet memes, they are created to be seen and/or read, but as with all joke cycles, they are open to manipulation. There is a strong parallel between today's internet memes and graffiti. The sheer quantity of truth underlying the internet memes made by the people for the people reflects anger and a need to be heard. This rebellion is created with a smile on the faces of the thousands of people who generate the sea of politically based humorous content online.
