You’ve probably heard of Internet words such as Facebooked, Googled, Youtubed, Twittered, Afrigator’d, Crunchbased and many others. Now you can add “Memeburned” to your Internet lexicon:-)

Here’s my own definition:

Memeburned is the act of being tech-fed with web-savvy insights and analysis from key thought leaders within the emerging market sector.

Launched in April 2010, Memeburn (pronounced “meemburn”) is a technology site tracking innovation, social media, culture and business. Memeburn is particularly focused on telling the world startup news and tech entrepreneurs’ stories from the emerging market sector.

The site features topics such as Social Networking, Mobile, Media 2.0, Future trends, Google, Twitter, Facebook, Social Media, Advertising, Augmented reality, Open source, Gadgets, Startups, Design, Newspapers and lots more.

According to Memeburn founder, Matthew Buckland: “It [Memeburn] is going to be a Mashable/Techcrunch for emerging markets and will focus on SA and Africa”.

In April, its first month of launch, the site recorded almost 25,000 uniques and about 40,000 page impressions, according to Google Analytics and is now registered on Google News as a quality content provider, giving further exposure to articles. The site currently has about 80 contributors and I’m delighted to be one of them.

Interestingly, you can read my first piece on Memeburn about some of the hottest Nigerian startups to watch.

I think this is great exposure for startups and innovations from Nigeria and Africa, especially since Memeburn appears on Google News results which makes it widely read by local and global tech pundits, venture capitalists and more.

If you think your startup deserves a mention or feature, you can submit your startup here for review.
