    Hi Annetta,

    Well I feel that the most important thing about viral content is the emotional factor. It can be anger, joy or whatever, but I feel the most of the times it’s the emotion people get from that content that makes them share it with others.

    Great post, thank you for sharing this. Have a pleasant day.
