We live in times where memes carry authority. Have an image attach a few words and people present it as the authority and then offer a few words as concurrence.
It is as though people outsource their thinking to the meme and then pronounce themselves as authorities and knowledgeable.
You can use this to your advantage by doing much the same thing in your communications.
But is that really the way you want to be known professionally?
I’m not telling you what you should do or not do. I don’t have the right answer here.
I’m just pointing out that this is one of the powerful ways that people try to use technology to make points.
