LitViral.com is based out of Philadelphia, PA, in the U.S., and is one of many sites under the Grind Mode Media, LLC umbrella. It is run by a global, well versed in a wide range of subject matters (ranging from hip-hop to politics) and diverse team of writers/contributors. But, for this site, it is all about the latest trending and viral content!
The website was founded by Chicago native and Penn State University alumna, Kenyetta ‘Native’ McKinney, M.A. (LinkedIn Profile), a former print and traditional media journalist (including television and radio in the Philadelphia sector). McKinney is often described as a tech ‘geek’ & innovator (according to her friends and peers who often say her forward-thinking was before its time). She is a website designer/frontend developer (since 2000), publicist & early adopter of social media and blogging (since 2003). Also specializing in social media tactics (for over a decade), and a digital media strategist. McKinney was the brains behind one of the first of its kind page-turn digital magazines in the early 2000s, alongside a fully programmable online radio station — before Podcasts. She often had to defend her position against critics who told her she was ‘crazy’ to house a magazine online. She would take the stance that all publications needed to be online because that is where the future was headed — and, so, here we are. Most of those publications are no longer in print because they did not see the vision (think Blockbuster Video and Netflix).
