Cracked pays people to make smart memes. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get in on it.

Famous brands spend a ton of time and effort carving out their social media presence in a way that makes them seem like the best, coolest thing ever. The thing is, your friends are doing the exact same thing, whether it's with photos, status updates, or even the GIFs and emojis they use.

But of course our readers are too smart to fall for any of that, so we asked them to expose the actual meanings -- or important missing details -- in social media posts.
