The Real Answer To "What Colour Is This Dress?"

What colour do you see? well the answer is press straight forward what you see....from this blog i screen shoot with two different post from different social media user and the answer is Blue & Black. but how come some people argue that they get the answer Gold & White?

Well here the real answer..."Viral Marketing" 

Yes this is the answer....what is viral Marketing?  

Viral marketing, viral advertising, or marketing buzz are buzzwords referring to marketing techniques that use pre-existing social networking services and other technologies to try to produce increases in brand awareness or to achieve other marketing objectives (such as product sales) through self-replicating viral processes, analogous to the spread of viruses or computer viruses (cf. Internet memes and memetics). It can be delivered by word of mouth or enhanced by the network effects of the Internet and mobile networks.[1] Viral advertising is personal and, while coming from an identified sponsor, it does not mean businesses pay for its distribution.[2] Most of the well-known viral ads circulating online are ads paid by a sponsor company, launched either on their own platform (company webpage or social media profile) or on social media websites such as YouTube.[3] Consumers receive the page link from a social media network or copy the entire ad from a website and pass it along through e-mail or posting it on a blog, webpage or social media profile. Viral marketing may take the form of video clips, interactive Flash games, advergames, ebooks, brandable software, images, text messages, emailmessages, or web pages. The most commonly utilized transmission vehicles for viral messages include: pass-along based, incentive based, trendy based, and undercover based. However, the creative nature of viral marketing enables an "endless amount of potential forms and vehicles the messages can utilize for transmission", including mobile devices.[4]

The ultimate goal of marketers interested in creating successful viral marketing programs is to create viral messages that appeal to individuals with high social networking potential (SNP) and that have a high probability of being presented and spread by these individuals and their competitors in their communications with others in a short period of time.[5]

The term "VRL marketing" has also been used pejoratively to refer to stealth marketing campaigns—marketing strategies that advertise a product to people without them knowing they are being marketed to.[6]

So when someone ask you what is the colour? what is the time? what is the purpose ? what is the shape? Well you answer what you see...

To avoid being stupidly Merry Go Round...what you can do is simply follow this step:

1st get either the picture with Black and Blue or White and Gold photo of this picture...gather at least 5-6 person and sit in a round at a table. the 1st person send the picture e.g the original Blue and Black picture to the person next to him/her. Keep it going until the 6th person. you will get the answer. Blue and Black...and it wont suddenly change to White and Gold....when either the middle or the last person claim saw White and can slap the person as hard as possible until the person he/she telling the truth which the 1st few person see the original colour.

So please don't get stupid and join the club to get small little things to gone viral..unless you are someone that well known or celebrities. if not please just stay at your own computer / tablet / mobile phone and shut up!
