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

The Six Things That Make Stories Go Viral Will Amaze, and Maybe Infuriate, You | Awesome stuff on internet | Scoop.it

"When Jonah Berger was a graduate student at Stanford, in the early aughts, he would make a habit of reading page A2 of the Wall Street Journal, which included a list of the five most-read and the five most-shared articles of the day. “I’d go down to the library and surreptitiously cut out that page,” he recalls. “I noticed that what was read and what was shared was often different, and I wondered why that would be.” What was it about a piece of content—an article, a picture, a video—that took it from simply interesting to interesting and shareable? What pushes someone not only to read a story but to pass it on?"

Une (petite) leçon à garder en tête pour la diffusion d'information

Jody MacPherson's curator insight, March 10, 2:36 PM

I think this sums up social media quite nicely:

"The irony, of course, is that the more data we mine, and the closer we come to determining a precise calculus of sharing, the less likely it will be for what we know to remain true. "

Rodrigo Mesquita's curator insight, March 21, 2:44 PM

"Facebook has scale. It has consumer interaction, data, the ability to control its environment, the context of use (device, time and location) and for now, it has the ear of brands and media agencies. If ever there was a time when digital could smash through that budget glass ceiling, it's now."


vejo ambientes (ferramentas, plataformas) como o facebook como as novas praças de discussão, antes circunscritas à relação com um jornal, depois a rádio, as tvs, que também compunham a praça, o papel da praça: o ponto de encontro para a reflexão.


vejo assim porque nasci dentro de um jornal na perspectiva da redação. de vez em quando, temo o impacto no curto prazo do novo processo de informação - com o indivíduo no centro - na forma de nos relacionarmos entre nós e com as instituições, que não  se formaram em função do nosso mundo. e hoje são lerdas, burocráticas. andam na velocidade da era industrial.


é por isso que aconselho a leitura de artigos como este.  uma boa análise da evolução de uma das praças até agora usada intensamente por nós.
