It is now official: The “What People Think I Do / What I Really Do” meme has overtaken the “Sh*t People Say” meme to become the latest sharing fad. It has to be, I read it from Mashable.
There’s a one to share about journalists, directors, tech geeks, girl gamers, art students, chemistry professors, teachers, sales men, vegetarians, doctors, graphic designers, social media managers, PR people, entrepreneurs, librarians, cartoonists, etc. Myriad really, like a true meme should have. You can find a few examples in the Mashable article and many more here on a related Tumblr feed. Like a true meme, this one also has room for some more funny and insightful pieces and we’re eager to see how the meme evolves.
To celebrate this glorious moment of a meme officially becoming a meme, here’s a take on the most important ones from our perspective: marketing, design, technology and sales.
