    "Why did that article go viral? What did it have that the thousands of others posted every day didn't?"

    They are interesting questions, or so I thought. That's why I decided to research it more, and so I'm currently doing my dissertation on this very subject. As anyone who has done research before knows though, the hardest part is getting participants to actually do the study!

    If this is a question that interests you and you have about 5-7 minutes spare, please can you click hereand help a poor student out?

    If you are interested in finding the results and super charging your own social sharing, then send me an email (using the email through that link) and I'll send you the result when I know more!

    Thanks for reading and double thanks if you filled out the survey!
