Mormon memes from Saturday morning LDS general conference

Published: Saturday, Oct. 5 2013 1:49 p.m. MDT


Social media is playing a significant role in the recent 183rd Semiannual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Listeners are sharing their thoughts through Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram. Some of these thoughts are presented in the form of "memes," which Merriam Webster defines as "an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture."

In this case, the memes are a combination of quotes and images shared online.

We've gathered some of the conference memes that popped up during the Saturday morning session of General Conference.

I don't think Des News or the author 'really' understands what a meme is. Understanding a meme is not to look up a deffinition and then relay what the deffinitions are to the readers (so they feel they are "in the know".)

These, at this point, are simply posters, or signs.

"What is a meme, then?, you ask....

A meme is NOT defined and or determined in the self-same day that it was created. That is what it is not.

And "definition" is not spelled deffinition.

I typed the comment on my iPad, as I am now. It was a mistake. I didn't scrutinize my comment.

If you want to get cute, it could be pointed out that it is incorrect to start sentences with conjunctions such as "And"...

My editor once commented, "You write like a Nephite" because I began many sentences with a conjunction.

Since then, I have been very careful about how I use them. LOL.

It's important to remember the new internet terms are evolving... there is NO official group to say what they mean. After enough time passes, we will agree on their meaning.

The one of Elder U. should be better written, "Douse your doubts before your doubts douse your faith. Interesting to hear the talks at GC and when such statements are made, instantly I think, now there's a great T-shirt quote...is anyone making them?
