From Miley to Vine, the Internet has seen some crazy (some hilarious, some worrying) trends in 2013 and this is a selection of some of the best.

6. Dead Giveaway Guy

in May Cleveland resident Charles Ramsey was interviewed after reportedly saving three women who had been in captivity for years. The video quickly became viral and Charles' hilarity crowned him a hero and a song version of the interview also trended.

7. Bound 3

This one is sort of a double trend. First Kanye West's 'Bound 2' video featuring his wife Kim Kardashian really collapsed online with viewers finding it terrible. Enter Seth Rogan and James Franco who parody the video frame for frame and this time the internet explodes in laughter. Winning. Watch Bound 3 here.

9. Screaming Goats

On February 23rd of this year a video was uploaded of goats who's screams sounded surprisingly like human. Cue an internet explosion of music video's featuring goat screams (especially a certain Taylor Swift song).

10. Vine

Vine (which was bought this year by Twitter) took over the news feed of tonnes of internet users in 2013 with its short 7 second videos which also lead to other 2013 trends (see Smack Cam).

11. Breaking Bad

AMC's hit show finished this September and marked the end of a short era for fans. Vince Gilligan's show has become one of the highest rated television shows ever and in a way has changed the face of television. And no doubt but the internet loved it.

13. GIFs

GIFs and especially reaction GIFs took off this year. What with tumblr and other social networks, GIFs became a funny way to share thoughts and feelings. Just one question remains; is it jifs or gi-fs.

14. Jennifer Lawrence

The star of 'The Hunger Games' trilogy became a fan favourite on the internet with her chilled, relaxed and playful attitude, yet all the same she remains to be able to deliver strong opinions on serious issues in society such as the image that the media portrays of women.

15. Doge

Undoubtedly the favourite for the silliest trend of 2013, Doge is simply a trend of pictures of a Shiba Inu dog (known as Shibe) with grammatically horrible captions. So trend. Much 2013. Such fame.

19. Photobombing

The photobomb is an art mastered in 2013. And who doesn't love being tagged in a crazy pose in the background of your friends favourite picture. Even whales are doing it.
