The 11 Worst Internet Trends of 2016
I want to start this round-up off by saying that 2016 was a pretty good year. Obviously there were some notable exceptions, but I’m trying to think positive here, guys. (I think it’s a good New Year’s resolution we can all have for 2017.) That being said, there was some pretty crappy stuff that went on this year and that includes some bad Internet trends.
Before I get into the rant, I’m going to start positive again and say that I’m not here to totally hate on the Internet. The Internet can be a great space. We can thank it for things like the #MannequinChallenge and for giving us an endless supply of hilarious memes. As great as the ol’ net is, it can also be a space that allows some of the most random, weird, and mean stuff become popular. And sometimes it just gets things wrong.
Nothing is perfect in life and that includes the Internet. Sometimes it wins and sometimes it loses. Check out the worst Internet trends of 2016 and hope that we have seen the last of them:
