    I just got 350 "likes" on one of my hubs from Facebook.  Does anyone know how I can find the origin of all those likes?  As you can tell I'm not that Facebook savy.

      It would be hard to find, congratulations though!

      Viral marketing is a great way to go, and for it to happen naturally it obviously means there was something special about what you wrote!

        Thanks but it sure would be nice to know how it happened so that maybe you could try and repeat it.

          You can have just one person click 'like' via the Hubpage for that to happen, if their friends like it, and their friends friends like it, and their friends friends friends like it, etc. I have one with 2000+ likes, and it is very difficult to replicate, sometimes it just happens, its the social phenomena.

    I've found you can never purposely repeat having a hub go viral or getting lots of likes...

      This happened to you too?  Do  you know what the source was?

        Yes, when everyone on Facebook wanted a cartoon character of their childhood they visited my hub on cartoon characters which was number one on Google for cartoon characters of the 50s and 60s, and I guess some of the ads were for sites with pictures.

        With less number of followers do you think it is possible to get traffic from facebook?

    It's not posted on facebook exactly, links to it are posted in peoples' private facebook 'walls' when one of their friends share it or like it.

    Extreme stuff tends to get spread around.
