Why do people try to make “viral” videos?

Sometimes they just want to share funny footage (everyone loves a cute-kitty video!), but more often than not, they want your attention. Viral videos grow in viewership like a snowball rolling down a hill. The more people who pass around the videos an share them with friends, the more popular the videos become! Video creators stand to make a few bucks from websites that pay a little moolah for every view. Advertising companies concoct viral videos in an attempt to build buzz around a product or piece of entertainment by tricking people into talking about it online. Next time you see something stupendous, think twice before hyping it. You might be giving someone free advertising!
