Social Media 101 – YouTube on what makes a video go viral?

Kevin Allocca – A YouTube Trend Manager (professional video watcher) gives his view.

Of over 48 hours of video uploaded every minute only a tiny fraction will go viral.

He credits 3 main factors:

  • tastemakers,
  • communities of participation,
  • unexpectedness

To find out what he means by this you will need to watch the video – which is well worth watching at only 7 1/2 minutes. If you want to know how apply this – contact me though the LinkedIn button below.

You may also be interested to know that another researcher expands on this considerably with a S.T.E.P.P.S. model.

If you would like someone to tell you more about his model, Viral Posting in general and how it applies to business. You can contact me through LinkedIn below.
