Controversial Rage Faces

A couple of weeks ago we released this video on our YouTube channel:

It quickly became one of our most seen videos, but also one of our most controversial. The comment section turned into a battle ground between different sites (4chan vs Reddit vs 9gag vs Funnyjunk).

From a Media Science perspective this clash of “user based titans” is highly fascinating.

Rage comics originated on 4chan and then spread across the internet, growing/changing with each new user base. So for a lot of people there is this feeling of other sites taking something unique and special, and ruining it.

Personally I would love to see someone in academia do research on this type of internet culture.
