Could it be that these funny and engaging pictures that we see scrolling through our phones have deeper outcomes than just making us smile for a couple of minutes? According to the research that was conducted by American Psychological Association, people who, in this case, “consumed” memes during the pandemic, especially on this topic, were coping with the situation better than those who decided to use different types of media.

How do we find memes helpful instead of, perhaps, a distraction? One factor is that very often, memes are found to be relatable in one way or another. For example, when COVID-19 touched each and every one of us in slightly different ways, we found comfort in understanding that we are not alone in this. When facing this unprecedented situation and being frightened by the news every day, memes work as a coping mechanism that eases the stress and minimizes the fear of the unknown.
