As you can see that positive content is more viral than Negative content.
There is not just a statement but it has been through research by Jonah Berger and Katherine L. Milkman.
Here is What they concluded was :
“…Looked at another way, when both the percentage of positive and negative words in an article are included as separate predictors (instead of emotionality and valence), both are positively associated with making the most emailed list. However, the coefficient on positive words is considerably larger than that on negative words. This indicates that while more positive or more negative content is more viral than content that does not evoke emotion, positive content is more viral than negative content.”
on his book Jonah Berger had been classified on the level of emotional arousal, just take a look the image below.
The higher level of emotion involved, will increase desire of people to share the content
