Mystery Hour Question

How many views or likes does something need to be considered to have gone viral?

Answer

Name: James O’Brien

Qualification: "Mate, I am viral every week!"

Answer: No one! We are just making it up as we go along. It is the same with all new language and technologies. It is a bit like asking, what does popular mean? There is no measure. You can say a video went viral that has only 12 hits but people will laugh at you. It’s the internet equivalent of word of mouth. Now it literally just means popular.
