The way things go viral on the internet boggles my mind. Whether the twin babies’ conversation or the Bronx Zoo’s Cobra…I know why they go viral but at the same time really have no idea why they do. Or how they travel through certain media streams and among certain demographics so incredibly quickly. Or what commonalities they share that fascinate people and make them want to share them with their friends (as I have already done with both of those).
Why do you think these – or other things – go viral? (If we figure this out, we might just become billionaires.)
