The Different Types of Viral Posts

Nowadays, social media has made it possible for persons to create viral posts. Viral posts are social media posts that are very engaging and are shared by many people. Viral posts can help marketers to spread the word about a product or service with little to no advertising budget. Viral posts can also help to build a fan base for a social media page. Viral posts are great for marketing because it brings free advertising.

In this article, I will explain the different types of viral posts.

Simply Viral: A simply viral post is a post that gets shared with no set frequency, but gets shared a lot, say, for example, more than a 100 times, depending on the existing fan base.

Super Viral: A super viral post is a post that gets shared around much faster than a simply viral post. Example a post that gets at least 2 shares every minute may be classified as a superviral post.

Exponentially viral: A post is described as exponentially viral if the rate at which it is being shared increase over time. That means, in the first 30 minutes, for example, the post gets 40 shares, but after 30 to 60 minutes, it gets an additional 60 shares.
