I'm actually not much of a browser on YouTube. I feel like if its trending and I'll like it, then I will come across it via friends sending via text/whatsapp/sharing on FB/twitter/etc/etc Although I do go to YouTube to watch @caseyneistat videos 🙊 Maybe the trending tab will help me find a couple of videos every now and then, we will see how it goes! Seems like a sensible option for YouTube to offer

I really wish youtube would focus less on what is getting the most views and would have a tab for top quality videos. I love viral videos but youtube has so much more to offer that currently gets ignored by the platforms algorithms.

Why is it called viral if it's not easy to find?

@ambonium you have a good point. But sometimes things can 'go viral' in niche communities and you might not know about them if you aren't active on Reddit/4Chan or wherever these things initially start gaining traction.
