The Six Things That Make Stories Go Viral Will Amaze, And Maybe Infuriate, You

Maria Konnikova talks about what makes stories appealing to everyone and why it is that we only share certain stories. She states that the main reason people decided to ‘share’ stories on Facebook with others is because they are happy stories or because they are arousing to us. I definitely do agree with what she says. The reason people share stories is because they are heartfelt stories or because they excite us about something whatever that topic may be. I think that people also like to share stories that are controversial or share stories that contain some type of Celebrity drama. Although just about everyone says they like to stay away from “drama” they like to read about other people’s difficulties.
