Why Videos go Viral, Friday Talk by Kevin Allocca

27 September 2013 BY

Why does a video on YouTube go viral? It’s a question many would like to see answered, for a simple reason: to create one themselves. That however is not as easy as it seems to be. Sometimes videos stay ‘in the dark’ for a long time to suddenly go viral.

If anyone knows anything about this its Kevin Allocca, who is YouTube’s trends manager. In this talk from TEDYouth, he shares the 4 reasons a video goes viral.

    Thanks for Sharing Bas. Its always fascinated me how Videos go viral but whats more interesting is how they get shared around and get so many views.

Nice job, you found it!

Now, go try out the 12th one:

Use Google Translate to bypass a paywall...

Ran into a page you can't read because it is blocked or paywalled? Here's a quick trick (doesn't always work, but often does!):

Type the page into Google translate (replace the example with the page you want):

http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=ja&tl=en&u=http://example.com/

How about that!?
