Totally agree! Viral is absolutely not a strategy--it's a phenomenon.

And I know exactly what you're talking about. All too often any kind of online content that COULD, potentially, be shared, that is simply share-able gets referred to as “viral.” Viral email, viral widget, viral video--the entire internet is evidently just a giant contaminated pitri dish of “viral content” vs. relevant, compelling, expression or social tools. I think we might all be better off if we stopped saying the word "viral" altogether.

I'm with you, Jenka to ban "Viral" from our everyday lexicon. In fact, I was presenting about "Social Media" to a company this afternoon and I told them I refused to use the word "viral" (but I also may have slipped ;-)


I took my first personal loans when I was not very old and this aided my family a lot. But, I require the term loan again.
