Why was the word 'joke' been replaced with 'meme' in the past decade?

Is it just used by geeks and pedos on the internet or normal people as well?

Update:

Please stop repeating the word meme and explain what the difference it.

    It’s not. It doesn’t mean the same thing.

    A meme is not a joke.  Your question, however, might be.

    They are two totally different things, mate.

    Edit: Ignore my response.  I can see, from looking at your previous questions, that YOU are a total idiot.

    Memes for the most part aren't jokes. If you want to see this look up memes on our lousy Senator Pelosi. Nothing they can say about her isn't true.

    A meme and a joke aren't the same thing.

    It wasn't. They aren't the same thing. "Meme" has risen significantly in usage, though, because of the Internet becoming a medium that greatly facilitates the creation of memes, making them far more commonplace than ever before. You know that a "meme" and a "joke" aren't the same thing because not all jokes are memes, nor are all memes jokes, many going for something else entirely, like inspiration or being heartwarming, not funny.
