To answer your question, no. I don’t think that all the aspects combined from Nahon and Hemsley can create the most viral content because the Internet is too vast and too full of information to create one HUGE viral moment. During class, we looked at the website “One Second” that showed us everything that was happening during one second on the Internet. According to the results, millions and trillions of activity is laying foundation onto this social platform. In this case then, the filtering comes into play because we accommodate our own social networking around the things, choices, objects, emotion we like to have. Thus, I could want something very different to go viral from the person next to me.

Is there a moment where an individual chooses to create something simply to go viral? Or do most ideas that actually become viral just unplanned, natural and associated to pop culture on the Internet?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
