Our Viral Prediction Chart is in its fifth week and we're having fun trying to guess what will go viral in the week ahead. We'll review any activity from the previous weeks and we've also chosen six new videos that we think are in with a chance. We're using Unruly Media’s viral video chart, which ranks the top videos in terms of shares globally as our statistical reference. We regard a video as 'viral' if it at the point of prediction has less than 250,000 total shares and receives a total of 1 million shares or more in 7 days as at Monday 12.00 noon GMT/BST each week.
We'll be looking at 6 videos we think will go viral in the next 7 days, and to get your prediction added, simply add a comment below and we'll track those in the chart the following Monday and let you know if it makes it according to our criteria.
