TED Talk Thursday – What makes something go viral? by Dao Nguyen

According to TED.com : “What’s the secret to making content people love? Join BuzzFeed’s Publisher Dao Nguyen for a glimpse at how her team creates their tempting quizzes, lists and videos — and learn more about how they’ve developed a system to understand how people use content to connect and create culture.”

“Dao Nguyen is the Publisher of BuzzFeed, a reinvention of the traditional title in which she oversees the company’s tech, product, data and publishing platform, as well as ad product, pricing, and distribution. Nguyen joined BuzzFeed in 2012 and has been instrumental in its rapid growth as the largest independent digital media company in the world. Prior to joining BuzzFeed, Nguyen oversaw product for a financial careers venture within Dow Jones. She also previously served as Chief Executive Officer of Le Monde Interactif, publisher of the leading news site lemonde.fr. Before moving to France, she was Executive Producer at Concrete Media, a small web agency, and a consultant at Andersen Consulting (now Accenture). She has a degree in Applied Mathematics / Computer Science from Harvard and is based in New York City.”

For those of you not familiar with TED Talks here is a brief summery from www.ted.com: “TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and Open TV Project, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize”
