“Viral” is really a hard thing to nail down a definition for. I mean, sure, we all understand that it means a thing that spread around a lot, but how of “a lot” before it reaches the point of viral? Is it thousands of views? Hundreds of thousands? Millions? Over what period of time?

I suppose it’s more one of those “I don’t know how to describe it, but I know it when I see it” kind of things.

But what’s it like when it happens to YOU? Let’s see what these anonymous contributors had to say.

Stay careful out there. Virality might not be all it’s cracked up to be.
