{topTED} Why videos go viral. – Kevin Allocca

Review by Nicole Lynn Riddle

If you ever wondered how exactly a video goes viral, this will give you a helpful insight into the process of viral glory.

Things I learned from this TED Talk:

  • There are A LOT of videos posted on YouTube every minute.
  • “Taste makers” are the catalysts that make videos go viral.
  • Rebecca Black’s Friday song still gives me a headache.
  • No matter how old a viral video is, people will still laugh at it.
  • Viral videos don’t always become hits the second they are posted.
  • And my favorite….you can watch YouTube videos professionally.
