It's Not a Viral (version 1)

  5. “ Can you make a Viral?”
  6. “ No.”
  7. “ Why?”
  8. You cannot make a viral.
  9. You can make content … and hope it goes viral, or push the content to try and make it go viral.
  10. If you get sick, you don’t say “I’ve caught a viral”
  11. You catch a virus. A germ. A bug. A piece of ‘organic content’…
  12. It is the passing of content between people that is ‘the Viral’
  13. Your content must be just as contagious to work
