“Going viral” means something completely different now than it did 15 years ago. The connotation surrounding something viral has switched from the negativity of a worldwide pandemic to the positive mass sharing of awesome content. You never really know what’s going to “hit” and take off on the Internet, but when it does, the effects are astounding. From grumpy cats to wondering what a fox says, and from kids biting each others’ fingers to dogs with broken English internal dialogues, these days you want your content to spread like wildfire.
However, sometimes content will just not hit. One could argue viral spread is all about timing, but that may or may not be true. Regardless, we came across this infographic, originally published by the minds at whoishostingthis.com and thought we’d shed a little light as to why your awesome content isn’t going viral.
