Death to the Internet Craze

Death to the Internet Craze | Social Meadia Fads | Scoop.it
The idea of the "internet craze" has outlived its usefulness. The half-life from internet meme to morning talk show segment is zero. It's time for journalists to retire this dumb pop cultural crutch. Every goddamn thing that happens on the internet is not an internet craze.
