9GAG is an image-based social media website which centres around user-uploaded, comical images dubbed "Fun". The site had 2 billion monthly pageviews as of Dec 2011, according to co-founder Ray Chan.[3] The website is mainly known for recurring use of internet memes.[4] Characters are usually poorly designed and usually in black and white which is part of the central focus of the humor in the site.[5] Similarly to websites like Reddit and Digg, users can vote and comment on images, with the newest and most popular appearing first.

9GAG participated in the Y Combinator startup accelerator program in summer 2012.[6] In July 2012, it announced raising $2.8 million dollars in seed funding, and a mobile app for Apple iOS.[7]

Controversy

9GAG became involved in controversy after rumors linked the web site with the 2012 Aurora shooting.[8] This was later exposed as a hoax.[9]
