Latest Viral News & Videos
What makes a video or photo go viral? Well, there is no perfect answer to this, but often it has been noticed that the relevance of that particular clip or picture contributes a lot to make it viral. In today’s time, social media has a lot of power and if someone has posted something that is resonating with the masses, there is nothing that can stop it from making it big.
Viral videos and photos are not just about happy, funny, or knowledgeable things. These days people are taking the help of social media to share their unpleasant experiences too or if they faced any kind of abuse or harassment. Also, sometimes these viral things help a lot to police if some incident has been reported and they need evidence.
For example, the George Floyd case, in which videos taken by the witnesses on the fateful day of May 25, 2020, helped investigators a lot to solve the case. Besides, media houses play prominent roles when police probing such sensitive issues need to check the trustworthiness of those videos. Not just in the police investigations, there are many examples where viral clips contributed to a discussion surrounding that topic.
There is a spike in “Karen” incidents, especially after the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, and if those incidents have not been recorded and shared on social media platforms, we would have missed a lot of racial abuse people suffer across the world. Another important example in this category is the ongoing Afghan crisis. There are a lot of videos and pictures going viral on the internet, showing the tragedy that people are facing there after the Taliban took over their country.
Coverage of such clips by media houses without any judgment or biases provides these videos and photos credibility and increases their reach as not all people are active on social media platforms. There are also many examples that show how viral clips covered by media houses helped someone in need.
