What makes something more shareable or go viral?

I want to make posts with good, shareable content. What makes content highly shareable and/or go viral?

When everyone goes ‘left’ go 'right’

e.g.

Link to actual question

Notice everyone chooses to write about famous people in answer to this question.

I choose to write about my DAD

Comparative stats:

245k views Vs 134.9k views

12k upvotes Vs 5.8k upvotes

Written Dec 1st 2015 Vs Jan 18th 2016

When you write something profound/original/from a different angle. If it’s genuinely insightful - you will get noticed.
