The Paradox of What Makes Something Go Viral

So what’s the secret to making something go viral? It starts with making something that people have no choice but to care about.

Something both so personal, but simultaneously so universal and human that not sharing it would seem selfish or “out of whack.”

Now, what you go about creating is totally up to you. It may take 100 or 1,000 tries to make something that has such an impact on people.

But if your goal is to make other people genuinely care about what you have to say — not in the general social media “like” way but actually feel it — you’ll have no problem going viral.

    Agreed! I also find it hard to limit a blog to just one topic though. There’s so much to write about.

    Making a story appealing to people ideologies and interest, has to be targeted and strategic, you might sometimes make a post, rich in its content and still doesn’t resonate with the people, so, the secrete is to keep it simple, interesting, attractive and interactively engaging.

    A potato salad went viral. The writer was asking for donations. Maybe they cared enough to help this individual. A bit of a twist.

    I feel this blogg, the more we speak and express our selves the more were herd. Speak up! The first amendment.

  42. Jenny 2 years ago

    There’s such a focus on going “viral” that there’s less of a focus on the beauty and community of sharing in the blogging world. Although nice, I sometimes wish that this constant goal of going viral was overshadowed by genuine interaction and communication by people in the blogosphere.

      I wanted to loose hope in people until I read your comment. Thank goodness! There is hope for the world. Why must the priority of the social media be things going viral?

    the more desperately one tries to go viral, the more crap comes out ..it’s better to keep doing what you know the best in a best possible way and eventually something might click with the people..
