  14. 14. Why videos go viral
  15. 15. 23 Mio views on a video of a train passing by!? „Whats going on? Videos make sense and make no sense at the same time.“ (Kevin Allocca, PSFK conference 2014) There is no recipe of how to make content viral, but it needs to be: social, authentic, emotional, outside the norm -> worth sharing Success can be measured, but not predicted. It´s not important from where the video is uploaded (cat videos from England, Japan or Russia are equally succesfull) - but it the location where the videos are viewed seem to have an impact (see Youtube Trendsmap). „Sometimes things just happen.“ (Kevin Allocca, PSFK conference 2014) Key Takeaways
