To say something becomes popular today and then it is no longer tomorrow, is a misuse of the word. What you are observing is merely manufactured popularity, nothing more. This is a top down phenomena. Popularity in its truest sense is a bottom up phenomena. We have even let them replace this word by calling it “viral” instead which is an insult to democracy. Don’t let anyone make such perverse changes to your language.
