(CNN) – Two videos were unleashed in recent days driven by social media campaigns. Korean rapper PSY released “Gentleman,” his long-awaited follow-up to “Gangnam Style.”

More controversial is the release of “Ding Dong,” from “The Wizard of Oz,” sent into the charts as an irreverent response to the death of Margaret Thatcher, which was fuelled by a Facebook campaign.

Anthony Decurtis, contributing editor Rolling Stone, talks to CNN about viral videos and what makes something go 'viral.'

    A creative and interesting article headline is essential. Headlines with interest will be much more alluring than boring ones. Take the time to consider different ideas before settling on a headline. Even ask some friends and family which one’s they like.;

    UNITED STATES OF AMRICA is,nt only continent , should be blamed by Syrian President, but rather his oppositions must exactly point out UN, they have got these weapons from,
    I should add to it that, that is,nt the main problomes to settle the crises of Syrians from own country,
    specifically, the citizens of Syrians do,nt want be under his leadership, then , United Nations should have this debat with him to surrender , to aviod usage of chemical weapons.
    Fortunately , we have found OBAMA BARRACK on our right hands to refuse sending militaries to put an end against this neglected leader , who does,nt to respect THE VOICES FROM WORLDWIDE,
    We are,nt expecting nomore to listen to this president, till they use all negative actions to overthrow his regime/ THANK YOU from me CNIL /SAISINE 11021447 IFP/IDE DUMOR mawuko koku

    Psy likened the Gangnam District to Beverly Hills, California, and said in an interview that he intended in a twisted sense of humour by claiming himself to be "Gangnam Style" when everything about the song, dance, looks, and the music video is far from being such a high class.',

    Saw you on CNN in the US regarding the Asiana crash. You were awful and obviously had no idea what you were talking about. These self serving CNN interviews with correspondents really do a dis-service. You have no clue of what the important issues are. FYI why was the airplane low and slow. What decisions did the CREW make and not make to put them in that position. The weather was beautiful. Hand flying a commercial plane to a landing should have been absolutely no problem. Forget all about the ILS, GPS and other navigation aides. They did not need them. I think you once had a piece where you had the opportunity to fly a simulator. That does not qualify you to comment on this event.
    Yes, I am a pilot.

    LAW ;USA ;GEOGRGE ZIMMERMAN;(MY OPINION] It seems that there is a black hole in the USA state which dealt with this murder case. This is a miscarriage of justice. I have been study this case for sometime. I agree that it was a very difficult case to handle. However ,i am highly disappointed with the outcome of the case. This proves that inequalities still exist in some jurisdictions in the USA.
    a) What has draw my attention more to this case ,is the age of the deceased. I have been trying to analyse the culpability of the deceased boy .I have concluded that George Zimmerman lied about the deceased in order to save himself from going to jail. b)This ,i have concluded that ,it will be injustice to the deceased innocent child if George Zimmerman walks free. The prosecution must therefore consider a retrial of the case. We know that the burden of proof will shift heavily upon the prosecution. But its worth it for the good reputation of the USA judiciary system ,the public and the human rights of the deceased. Otherwise this will bring into disrepute the USA judiciary system . c)It is true that the defence may use the double jeopardy [no one to tried twice for the same crime],but in this unique case ,the authorities have to override that. George Zimmerman is guilty of murder. If he had shot and wounded him ,it could be something else. But for the fact that he pulled the trigger and shot the boy in an area were he knew he was going to die means he intended to kill him
    d)Of much concern in this case is the age of the deceased. All human rights Organizations and church /religious organizations have to fight for the human rights of the deceased boy. The dead boy must also have his human rights recognized. This is total injustice to Trayvon Martin and his kindred.[and the entire black race in the world]

    Your way is: What. Where. Who. When. Why.... (sorry) is wrong.
    The right way is a WORK-FLOW: What is it?
    Only a COUPLE by a (pragmatic) do this.
    What (what?). Where (why?). Who (name?). When (target?). And so on...
    Is the same like a Reporter fallout a mistake. Why?
    When he show all the Problem, but, don't show the Solution.
    Why? All the focus shown are PROBLEMS. What is a Problem?
    PROBLEM is a fallout mistake needing a SOLUTION.
    Now the Reporter World change the Vision of Facts!
    And the Way to Show his Works !
