Internet is becoming the most powerful and effective way of sharing news. Everything that happens in the world appears on the virtual space within an instant. There is no wonder that more and more people begin to use this recourse for becoming famous as with the help of Internet it can be done fast and easy. The most effective method is, probably, using viral videos.
Viral videos are posted on video sharing websites such as YouTube, Stickam and so on. The indicator of the video’s popularity is the amount of views it has received from the users. One of the most famous examples of becoming a celebrity through viral video is Justin Bieber and his song “Baby”. Another singer who became known thanks to the number of views on YouTube is Rebecca Black with her too simple and too catchy song “Friday. Her video received nearly ten million views within a week. It is not necessary to be talented; you can have a success only with some original idea or a new way of attracting users’ attention. For example, Amber Lee Ettinge, who is now known as the Obama girl, made a video about her more than warm feelings towards Barack Obama which gathered about 20 million views.
