Bad news sells. If it bleeds, it leads. No news is good news, d good news is no news. Those are the classic rules for the evg broadcasts d the morng papers. But now that formation is g spread d monitored (监控) differt ways, researchers are discoverg new rules.

Was positive news shared more oft sply because people experced more good tgs t bad tgs? To test for that possibility, Dr. Berger looked at how people spread a particular set of news stories: thousds of articles on The New York Tes' website.

Readers also tded to share articles that were excitg or funny, or that spired negative gs like ger or xiety, but not articles that left t merely sad. They needed to be aroused(激发) one way or the other, d they preferred good news to bad. The more positive article, the more likely it was to be shared, as Dr. Berger exps his new book, "Contagious: Why Tgs Catch On."
