I would direct the student to the books Going Viral, by Karine Nahon and Jeff Hemsley, and The World Made Meme, by Ryan Milner.

    A student asked me to provide my opinion on the following questions.  Some
    of these questions are easy to answer but others require independent
    research inquiry (and data) to answer it.
    I will appreciate your thoughts and possible responses to these questions,
    if possible. Or perhaps share some articles which may have answered some of
    your questions.
