Social Media is a powerful tool for your beliefs, ideas, videos or images to get noticed. One can become famous over night without being a celebrity. A popular image went viral of a teen boy bagging groceries. The hashtag ‘Alex from Target’ went viral in a couple of hours after a young teen snapped it and shared it on her Twitter page. The image became so popular that Alex received more than 700,000 followers on his Twitter account and was invited to the Ellen Degenres show. In order to have an image or video go viral it should be original. The user sharing the content should also have many followers that will share the content.
