A Friending Meme is an activity to encourage fans with similar interests to find each other and "friend" or "follow" one another's social media accounts. Friending memes are usually hosted on a personal journal, but can also be found in communities. Friending memes can be of any scope; there are general friending memes, fandom-specific ones, or themed friending memes.

The original poster often provides a set of questions such as name, age, country of origin, favourite fandoms/pairings/characters, hated fandoms/pairings/characters, etc.

For example, these questions for the Fandom Snowflake Friending Meme were written by akamine_chan, adapted from a template by rubytuesday5681:[1]
