The good folks at BuzzSumo analyzed 100 million articles and came up with a list of 10 elements that make content go viral online. Noah Kagan’s OKdork.com blog was nice enough to list it out.

There is plenty of useful information backed by a lot of data that you could apply to your own content marketing. And face it, you may be an artist or a poet or a healer, but if you’re trying to get noticed on the social web, you’re a content marketer.

It’s unlikely Oprah or any celebrity will re-share your posts, but  that’s OK, there are still millions of people on the social web – and over 300,000 of them are using CoPromote to reach new people with every post.

On CoPromote, once our members share your content once, there’s a 97% chance they’ll share it again. Also, on average, for every 100 views your posts get on CoPromote, you can expect approximately 15 shares. Why? Because exchanging posts is all CoPromote does. Our community is dedicated to the idea and practice of sharing each other’s content. When people join, they are already intent on sharing content, they’re just looking for content they like. Why not add your content to our mix? Once our community gets to know you and your content, they will trust you and be more likely to share your posts.

Our advice, go through this handy list, see what you can apply to your own strategy, and when you’re ready  to reach beyond your own social circle – you know where to find us.

Top 10 Summer Music Festivals U.S., 2011

Lollapalooza Crowd

The calendar says summer doesn’t start until June 21, but everyone in the U.S. knows it really starts with Memorial Day  Weekend. In NYC, there is no shortage of outdoor music, from the perennials like Central Park Summerstage, Celebrate Brooklyn in Prospect Park and MOMA/PS1’s Warm-Up in Long Island City, Queens to festivals that roll into town every year like the Latin Alternative Music Conference to some others that only make it once or twice like All Points West. Others across the U.S. include the Pitchfork Festival in Chicago; Bonnaroo in Manchester, TN; Outside Lands in San Francisco; and Burning Man in Black Rock City, NV. Over the holiday weekend, the Movement Electronic Music Festival got things started in Detroit and Sasquatch Festival in Gorge, WA.

Headliner family – where are you located and what are some of your favorite music festivals? We especially want to hear about the smaller, local festivals that don’t get as much play as the big guys. Tell us where you’ll be (or have been) this summer and send along some snaps for our blog, Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr. Here’s a sample of what’s coming up in the U.S. this summer. Pack your sunscreen, smartphone and get dancing. Next, our international list, get your passports ready!

One of the biggest, occasionally controversial, electronic music festivals in the last few years.

Hard Summer
August 6, Los Angeles, CA.

Headliners: Chromeo, Ratatat, Shit Robot, James Murphy, Holy Ghost!

Pitchfork Music Festival
July 15-17

Rock the Bells
San Bernardino, CA. (August 20); Mountain View, CA. (August 27); New York, N.Y. (September 03); Boston, MA. (September 10)

Electric Zoo
