This video link was sent to us in response to the viral video definition post. I think everyone will be shaking their head saying “Yep, I’ve said that.”

Definition of a Viral Video June 16, 2012

Here is the updated definition of “Viral Video”:

A video is considered to have gone viral if it is on track to receive 10,000 or more views in the span of 30 days. Therefore a video that receives at least 333 views in one day is viral. Unless a viral video is at least “moderately viral” (see below), using the term viral to describe it is purely academic.

There are levels of viral:
A video is considered mildly viral if it is on track to receive 10,000 views in 30 days.(333 views/day)
A video is considered somewhat viral if it is on track to receive 300,000 views in 30 days.(10,000 views/day)
A video is considered moderately viral if it is on track to receive 1,000,000 views in 30 days. (33,333 views/day)
A video is considered fully viral if it is on track to receive 3,000,000 views in 30 days. (100,000 views/day) Once a video reaches this level or higher adverbs describing degrees of viral are redundant.

It is likely that most viral videos do not sustain the daily view counts for the entire 30 days. A video may be viral for one or more days without actually achieving 10,000 views. The monthly counts are most useful for talking about what has happened in the past. You can say “last March the video went moderately viral, receiving 1,200,000 views.” Of course you can just say “viral” without the adverb. One can talk about a video that receives more than 333 views in consecutive days as “continuing to go viral” or continuing to go fully viral if it continues to receive daily view counts over 100,000.

This definition is based on looking at view counts of videos such as Double Rainbow, the Anton Dodson video and hundreds of others.

This is a website for choral musicians. There are few videos of choirs that receive 333 views in a single day. There are few ensembles that have ever achieved 100,000 views in one day.

This is an incomplete list of amateur choirs who have achieved viral status without singing with a celebrity or on a TV show and using an actual video of the choir (no slide shows or stills):

AppleChor the 4th and 5th grade choir from Red Apple School in Racine, WI recently sang a cover of Chemicals Collide. The performance was part of this science magnet school’s water theme. The audience created the sounds of a rainstorm and then the kids sang with the band Above the Fold. They were then asked by Cloud Cult to record some music for their album due out in Fall 2012.
