How did these things get so popular anyway




I have a question..... how do fads become fads? I mean I know that people tell people about it.... but there's gotta be something more to it, right? I mean like songs like harlam shake and gangnam style are really popular but how did they become popular? Suspect

It most likely starts when a group of people (it could be anyone from movie stars to random group of homeschoolers) decide that it's "cool."  Lots of people are followers, in that, when someone else thinks something is cool, we naturally want to think it's cool too.  So, when the first group of people declare it "cool" and go crazy about it, then all of their friends/followers declare it "cool" too, and go crazy about it, and then the friends/followers of the friends/followers of the original group of people begin to do the same thing, and it continues to grow.

In this world, "new" is always better.  So sooner or later, everyone begins to decide that certain fads are "old news" now, and they go on to "new" fads.

Yeah new fades fast or becomes normal. Like we have a dance here called azonto. It was a fad but now it is the normal kind of dance.
