Ever since the dawn of the latest update of Facebook, picture sizes within the Facebook feed have increased. This helps memes become more viral on the well-known social networking site, along with various cute ICanHasCheezburger pictures.

Recently, you may have seen a new meme start to arise on Facebook with images segmented into six sections with the following titles that relate to a specific profession:

  • What my friends think I do
  • What my mom thinks I do
  • What society thinks I do
  • What my boss thinks I do
  • What I think I do
  • What I actually do
