Probably everyone already knows, but I just realized that Facebook acts as a (vastly) simplified blogging platform so that blogs are, in effect, easily connected and shared, and thus memes reproduce much more rapidly than in blogs, so Facebook provides a more meme-friendly environment and thus the meme thrives more: meme evolution in action.

You really should sometime read Susan Blackmore’s book The Meme Machine.
