Week 8 of our Viral Video Predictions contains three videos and two Vines. We're currently using Unruly Media’s viral video chart, which ranks the top videos, Vines and Instagrams 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 doubles or more the number of shares – OR doubles the total views in 7 days as at Monday 12.00 noon GMT/BST each week. We've decided that the increase in the number of views is also a fair indicator of the views gained by sharing, especially in Facebook where some influencers massively increase views without any further sharing. We've got some great viral predictions for the week ahead:
