Trending! It's a fascinating thing. We've all seen it on Twitter and it tends to follow obvious patterns. The most popular subjects, videos and pictures are batted back and forth on the web and they become viral. Pretty soon the video of the cute talking dog you saw on your Facebook account from a friend in Timbuktu is suddenly coming at you from all directions. So wouldn't it be great if you could influence that? Infactio.us allows you to influence just what people are watching and sharing.


With infactio.us you can choose to see what's truly viral on the net...and have some influence on it by choosing to be an incubator or a carrier. If you choose to be an incubator your job is to produce the most viral content, aka. "virus", you would possibly make! Drop it to a location and let it "infect" as many people as possible. Infactio.us provides metrics and tools such as a heat map to help you to track the number and spread of casualties in real-time! If you choose to be a carrier you scan for extremely viral content, aka. "virus", around you. If you like it, you can choose to be "infected" and guess what? You'll carry it! The "virus" then travels with you to other locations, and "infects" more people.

 

Conclusion
While we tend to think of viral content as something bad and damaging it can also be used to...
