3D Memes Are Here And They're Adding A Whole New Dimension To Messaging
@EsManoloSalinas/Twitter

3D memes are nothing new, but they sure are evolving quickly.

First introduced in 2012, according to Know Your Meme, one of the earliest-known 3D memes was Computer Reaction Guy, but there wasn't much of a reaction then compared to the increasing popularity of the trend today.

Facebook rolled out a new 3D photos feature where users can share pictures showing depth between the subject and its background.


However, you will need a smart phone that is compatible with your camera phone's dual lenses to render images "like you're looking through a window" for posting 3D photos on Facebook.

So while everyone can see a 3D meme, not everyone can post one.


Facebook announced their latest development that is enhancing your photo-sharing experience.

"You can also view 3D photos in VR using the Oculus Browser on Oculus Go or Firefox on Oculus Rift. Everyone will be able to see 3D photos in News Feed and VR today, while the ability to create and share 3D photos begins to roll out today and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks."

Facebook Meme pages are getting in on the 3D meme action, and the Daily Dot believes Dimemetional may have started the craze.

Here, they shared an example of a 3D meme of Elon Musk, with lasers darting out from his eyes as he says, "I see you," referring to his online feud with Fortnite.

Another Facebook page adding to the phenomena is 4d3d3d3 Engaged.

Here, they post a moth's vision as it looks into the heart-eyed emoji of a lamp.

To interact with these next generation of memes, you simply click and drag the image to view all angles.

Sometimes, developers like to hide Easter eggs behind the meme. Dimemetional shared 4d3d3d3 Engaged's post, asking followers, "Can you spot our logo?"

"The memes are evolving," 4d3sd3s3 Engaged wrote in their "about" section, shedding some light on the future of the meme.

"Whenever a new frontier is established, memes will rise to the challenge and come to our aid, working alongside us to provide a much-needed break from reality."

They added:

"Now memes are trickling into the third dimension. For too long it has been one-sided. We have been making forays into the world of memes—now memes are coming into ours."

From a marketing standpoint, employing 3D images is a no-brainer, according to Marni Hamberg, digital brand manager of Ritas – the Facebook Page for Anheuser-Busch's Bud Light Ritas.

"The visual moves and changes encourage people to tap into and expand more," Hamberg told Digiday.

"Long-form video has been declining as attention span [in News Feed declines]. 3D photos is the logical next step as a format that grabs your attention."

Even popular memes from the past are getting a facelift, like the "Distracted Boyfriend" meme.

According to Know Your Meme, "Within 72 hours, the post gained over 200,000 shares, 47,000 reactions and 37,000 comments







It's still too early to tell if the niche trend will take off since not everyone has the capacity to post 3D photos online.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

"What never fails to piss you off?"
