All good things must come to an end eventually. You might love certain GIFs — you might hold onto certain YouTube clips forever. But all trends have a life span; they are mortal. All memes must meet their maker.

Sometimes, like Harlem Shake videos, they go silently and peacefully. Other times, they fight to the very last flash mob

We need to be better about letting go, Internet. Some of the memes below got their fair share of love this year, but we need to realize when it’s time to move on to bigger and better things. Let’s join forces and stop sharing them. Together. Read more…

Your life is about to get a whole lot trendier.

Pinterest just released its most popular trends for 2015, showcasing the top 10 searched terms for a multitude of countries including the United States, Japan, France, Brazil, the United Kingdom and Germany.

Google’s image search is getting a Pinterest-like treatment.

Google introduced a feature on Wednesday that lets people save images directly in their mobile browser. You once had to bookmark a page, download the image directly or even pin it to your Pinterest board, but now Google is making that process easier on your phone.

For now, the feature is only available in the U.S. on all major mobile browsers on iOS and Android. When you’re searching for an image, select the one you want and tap the star to save it. Once you’ve starred a couple images, you can organize them into folders. To add an image to a folder, click the pencil-shaped edit icon and add the name of the folder. It’s a lot like Pinterest, which lets you save images to categorized boards that you can go revisit later. Read more…
