Come to think of it. U sooo right. Where are all those bad belle peeps who like using linda's'name to get 5seconds fame on twitter?
In journalism bad news is good news........so dts y it sells more dan d oda(UNiversity of lagos masscumm grad)
Simple reason why bad news travels fast is that of the negativity sells. The average person would rather talk about negative stuff than they would positive. Compare comment count on your blog, positive vs negative post and you'll see. It's easier for the average person to be negative than it's for them to be positive. Positivity is a conscious effort, just my 2 cents
Lin, Has God answered your MANly prayers?
it is simple, bad news inspires curosity and gossip,good news is most times not proneto gossip, humans have itchy ears, www.tatafonaija.blogspot.com
Linda, why do you always have to draw attention to yourself? The 'pity party' crowd has dispersed! In case you act all innocent and behave like you have no lre wszWhy not another example other thn the RMD case?
The heart of man is desperately evil and wicked,as most times human beings like ourselves want to see the downfall of others.I hope this answers your question.
Bad news spreads faster because of our concern and curiousity. Sometimes good new spreads faster, though. We usually hear about weddings faster than divorces but this probably because people don’t make big announcements about divorceswww.nofallmyhand.com
LMFAO @Rmd tells Linda to get a life, rmd and linda trends.. Lol. U know Sh*T is Cray.. People prefer talking bout downfalls than uprising and its very sad!!
Because blogs like yours post more bad news than good news,u make your readers enjoy the bad news more than good news,90% of your post = bad news what you expect?people love the negativity you feed them with
I think its because bad news triggers our curiosity, makes us want to learn more, and ultimately easily influences our emotions.That is why journalists say bad news is good news. We love things that happen suddenly, unsusal,gripping and exposing
Good question! Its unfortunately natural. Misery loves company. People are more curious about the dark side of humanity. Guess our world is really fucked up."Nothing travels faster than light, with the possible exception of bad news, which follows its own rules”. - Douglas Adams.
U dey go MIA ke? tok tru make i help u. @eeeao
Dats tanx to d society in which we live in...mia for a few hours? Hmmmmmm....linda dat guy must be a super stud
u are right sha, good news doesnt trend easily, since i blogged about it, the story had fewer hits than all my other posts. Only God will reward him. www.nellyozojie.blogsot.com
"A few hours"? You go guuurll!! ;)
Unfortunately,that's just human nature. People, especially those who do not really know Christ, crave negative drama a lot...and are excited to see people fight and perish....
Unfortunately, that's just human nature. People, especially those who do not know Christ, crave negative drama a lot!
Linda bia,y don't u bless ur readers d way God has blessed u?Abeg aunty do sontin in d life of ur readers na!Abi e too mch for bigs girls like u?Ow u check am ?
People like to hear oda pples bad news to make them feel better about themselves.they hate to rebroadcast goodnew since its not about them. Dats why bad news travels faster
Its jus d way life is. But seriously did RMD tell u 2 get a life?
Well...I'm believing that it's bcoz bad news 'SHOCK WAVE' ȋ̝̊̅§ felt heavier than dat of good news Ãήϑ it gives room Fø̲̣̣я̅ bad news carrier τ̲̅ȍ transport the news faster.....ℓ☺ℓ!
Bad news is a lot more exciting to hear!
Well done for showing your sense of humour! I was going off you big time with all the self publicity every third or fourth post featuring a photo of you ( are you looking for a husband? Lol!)
By the way it should be RMD and Linda trend...
Jude Okoye gave a cancer patient 1million??!! Wow! That's good! I pray for more blessing on his life and that God replenishes what he gave outCHI
I must commend you for working hard yesterday.God bless the works of your hands.good news is normal news to some people while bad news is exclusive.ciao
Coz d heart of men are by nature of Evil tendencies...
That is human nature, that is why celebs use it to become more popular.
Linda,wats happening at MIA? Tatafo,just have a fun filled day.
May be its because devil do his things very quick and fast, and God is a god of patience. So bad news always travel very quick and as fast as anything. Anyway that we human being for u
No one celebrates good intentions, motives, deeds genuine anymore! Evil has overtaken the land, only the strong can survive. We need good old moral values back into our lives and not vanity. May God continue to bless you Jude, pls don't let this deter you from doing good deeds. Its on record for you by God, no-one can repay you for that. It will be lip service. The Bible says, He who gives to the poor lends to God. So imagine lending to the creator?!
Cause the evil in the world outweighs the good. Most people are happy for your downfall rather than your success
It's because you had a selfish motive for wanting it to trend....so Jude will feel like he owes the fact that he's trending to you, and ask you out on a date.....desperado oshi! Like the hits on ur blog was not enough to show that people were appreciative.....pls look elsewhere ashawo! Jude is not stupid....even if he falls for ur scheme, he'll still discover d kind of pretentious thing you are. If you like no post am.
Linda....dem no tell u nah bad news day swt pass* ironically*
God Bless Jude Okoye he will not lack any good thing in Jesus name. Linda you have a life already and either you believe it or not you are an inspiration to many young people. if that is all you do, it is very worthwhile. keep up the good work.
Unless the good deed was done in a dramtic manner, noone realy cares. We just smile and move on. Via my Crackberry
Τ̲̅ђε̲ more reason Ɣøû must always be I̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ τ̲̅ђε̲ news Fø̲̣̣я̅ Ǥ☺☺Đ reasons
that's cos d generation we in now crave to hear bad things. its just pathetic and sad..
RMD shuld go and sit down and stop behavin like agbaya joor ;;)
bad news is wat everybody wants to hear, it is natural we are configured to think bad, act bad, feel bad. that is why we get jealous when we hear that our friends are ahead of us why we remain at a good position. it takes a wise and a good man to remain happy when we hear good news generally. even the media (cnn, bbc, aljazeera, presstv, sky news, AIT, NTA) all spread bad news becos it is the order of the day. Boko haram bombed sokoto, it spread it wild fire, but when a man donates to charity, the media wont get it on the news.KIAH2015
Good news is wide spread and is supposed to be the background and widely expected. Bad news is abnormal and supposed to the figure and least expected. Using the background and figure studies, one can easily spot the figure (bad news), which easily stands out from the background and noticed.
Kidding me??...u always MIA..no updates 4 hours..
@Linda, A lot of Nigerians just like repeating tale of woes, maybe it gives them a feeling that only them can explain, Na so the thing Go#AsShankWouldSay
Simple! cos d world is full of haters n naysayers all they want to c is ur downfall and negativity!
did rmd, really tell you to go and get a life????JHEEEZZGOOD NEWS HAS ALWAYS SPREAD FASTER THAN BAD NEWS.....THAT IS SOMETHING THAT NOONE CAN CHANGE
aha, Linda, I see say you wan take my advise to try that new bobo out before you begin appear with am in public. Good girl. We don tire to dey see your fine yansh swagging alone at events.Bad news are boosted from the sender by plenty megabytes of bad belle wey go increase the rate of propulsion. The receiver too go dey produce serious amounts of stomach acid wey go attract the news like magnet.Good news on the other hand be like person wey dey swim for ogbonna soup. All the jara in form of playa haters and ppl ready to rain on one's parade go prevent any hasty movement.Abi I lie? OK, my sister let me know how the bobo perform o! In fact, d length of time u go dey undercover go tell me by itself - haha
Bad news travel faster cos its sweeter n hotter n somtymz sad. Its gossip its gist
Lwkmd at rmd tells Linda to go get a life,,,,,u really are one silly chick,got to say I love ur style of blogging though.keep it up girl
because good news is no news
Good heart! God bless him for his kindness
I dont just know oh. Bad news are like rumours. They travel half way around d world b4 good news puts it trousers on
Beacouse the heart of human being is desperatly wicked.
Cuz,the world we living in is BAD,dats just the way it is.
Wots dis eeew! Linlolo! Abeggi dis wan no 4low! Dis aint news! But I could sense sumtyn frm dis! So wan tell d whole world say Engees help d boy abi? So dat odas wey neva give dia own quota go do dsame abi? Chaii nne e bu nwafo!..o ke sense ki bu! ..Papee scata skata No mata!
Bad news travel fast cos with people generally.. especially when you are from the bottom class and you see and interact with people that "supposedly" have all the best stuff in the world, there comes the envy and jealousy and bad blood starts to develop and then as soon as they hear something bad has happened they help spread the news cos the feel the person was a show off or snub so deserves anything bad that happens to them....
I guess it's bcos most bad news come with a bit of controversy. Most bad news v numerous versions as 2 wOt rili happened n pple luv gossip n speculation. It adds a bit of mystery which most pple find intriguing. Good news on d other hand, is in most cases, precise n devoid of controversy, wot's d fun it dat? Lol! V u noticed pple's reactions 2 a testimony abt a person who narrowly missed a ghastly accident vis-a vis a story of a person who actually died in same accident? My point exactly!
Why does circular music sell lmore than gospel music?????or why do good girls lyk bad boys n vice versa!!!!! *questionsfoorsango*. Lool
I guess its because most people are always so eager to hear about the bad things happening to people rather than the good things that is happening or has happened to them.I had a friend like that once! All she wants to hear from me is how i broke up with that guy, why i left my job, sad stuffs. Anytime i wanna tell her good stuffs that happened i always hesitates cause i know she would just *yinmu* on it and say "Abeg, jist beta jari'So lindalin, people will rather hear all the bad stuff and spread it rather than share in your joy!Ayaf said my own sha.
that to tell u how wicked, Mens heart are
Linda Bad News Spreads Faster Than Good News Thanks To People Like You
Psychologically speaking, people do think of bad things than good. People only wish for good things, but their thinking is full of bad, bad things. So also the richer the thinking the faster the news goes. thus makes bad news travel faster than good news. In most cases people doubt the reallity and possibility of the good news so they don't bother spreading it. Just tell someone that Obasanjo's new wife gave birth to a baby boy or say Obasanjo had an accident, people tends to believe the later than the former news. PERIOD ..... from my customised BlackBerry that has no berry
Did Jude do it to trend on twitter?!!!! Do you hear yourself?! Does the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation trend on twitter?! How many charities trend on twitter? Ehn Linda, seriously this is the dumbest post you have ever put up. If you like don't post my comment. Trend on twitter. Shio. Like thats a reward. hiss.
because Bad news makes GOOD NEWS... journalist will understand that lol
Humans seem to be desparate for sensations, for bad sensations, people find it more easy to gossip on bad things than good ones this is because there is more to bad gossip than with the good ones.
linda pls dont go ooo
You have the right answer to that question Linda...YOU DO YOU ( LINDA ) POST GOSSIPS AND BAD NEWS INSTEAD OF GOOD NEWS ??? if you can answer that then we all wont have to crack our brains , that should explain why bad news spread faster than good news ....tnks
That's people 4 u. They re constantly waiting 4 somtin bad to hapn to u. They alwaz xpect ur tears and pretend to be a big broda/sista by wiping those tears nd sayin sorry, meanwhilea, they re mockin behind.
Well iThink its how as humans we have programmed our mind, We tend to see the bad side and ignore the good side most of the tyms..take a look @ d Olympics opening ceremoni for example, b4 #TeamNigeria was called, u nided to see alot of stuff pple were tweeting abt Us(iDid too sha)....Na so. We r humans, we wud always be
bcus bad news seems more interesting, they have wings, no force can stop them.But wait oh! Linda wat re u trying to insinuate?Those news ain't true or wat? Bcus ur name is involved or wat?Abeg pack wella joor, and pack far away from rumour mongers.If u like no post my comment, na u sabi.
Because some people are always waiting to hear of other people's downfall or misfortune
Simple...cos pple are more interested in bad things than d good stuffs...pple wud rather talk about death,robbery,prostitution and d likes than of pple who are doing good for demselves and others..I guess datS how the world has been programmed cos its like dat all over d world.
bad news travels faster because the heart of man is desperately evil and craves for bad news to feed its nature
awwnnn..sorry aunty linda sometimes in life the going gets tough but in order to progress you've gotta toughen up for that situation..yes the fact that RMD told you to get a life is still fresh in the atmosphere but you've got to pushhhh>>> that aside continue blogging my dear aunty linda you are a really great blogger! xo.
Because these dys bad belle 2much pple dont wnt 2 hear gud news abt some1 it break their heart.Linda i lyk ur spirit God wll bless u, i've knwn u through soft sell magazines even b4 u started ur blog nd 2day ur blog is a mst read 4 me evryday,u r a stng woman
Linda U sef funny ..dats why u dont spoil something cos it is always difficult to create ...maybe u can trend the news if it doesnt na by force
Linda what is your own with jude giving out money? It isn't a new thing to help people in need so stop making a mountain out of a mole hill. I really don't see why that should be something to trend on twitter. I am not saying they shouldn't be appreciated but saying he should "trend" is off the edge.
Linda, it is a well known fact that bad news travel faster than good news. It needs no explanations. However, it hurts me that you sometimes like to dwell on irrelevant things. Jude Okoye donated a million Naira to the brain tumor patient and over 200 messages from your readers praising his kindheartedness and praying for him as well. He doesn't need people dropping messages for him on twitter because the good Lord has blessed him already; he doesn't need mere mortals like us saying anything on his kindness.However, for K-Solo bashing his wife – I think you were the person who made the story travel fast because I don’t even know the guy in question. If you had not taken your time to be listening to or publishing that his so called yeye wife’s nonsense on your blog God knows that most people wouldn’t have known anything about their boxing arena home.For you and RMD, I think you took the piss and I am glad the way RMD maturely put you in your place.Linda, we need you to do more educative stuff on your blog.
Linda, I think bad news travels faster than good ones because people like you enjoy broadcasting bad news more than good ones. Just take a look at your previous posts and tell me how many good news you have there?Well, I still think you are doing a great job; you've informed me of a lot that I never knew about. Thanks.
Yes, bad news travel faster than good news just like rumours travel faster than news. It is the weakness in us, otherwise, this should not be.
No b bad ppl we b? Aha naw, so wetin u expect? but aunty Lin wetin b MIA ?
This is true! I guess people are sometimes in a hurry to be the bearer of the news.Excelling as a woman- www.princessofzion.wordpress.com/2012/07/31/excelling-as-a-woman
It's a case of people laughing at other people's misfortunes. Beef!
Hi Linda, Pls i'll like to call your attention to what is going on at the baggage area at MMIA. I came into the country a few days ago with my family, waited for about 3 hours for our suitcases, just to get home and find out that virtually all we came with had been stolen at the baggage area. Apparently, what they are doing is delaying larger suitcases, ransacking them and helping themselves with whatever they want. This is totally appalling! I've thought about where to lodge my complaint, but cldnt think of any where else, thus this mail. Pls if you can throw more light on this issue on your blog so that FAAN and the general public become aware of this disgusting act. Thanks and stay blessed!
Ur doin ojoro. So u quickly changed ur gbagaun ehn and didn't post my comment. Lmao. #GodiswatchingU
lindy lindy, shey u knw say cool fm dey post ur same blog news on their fb page? oya fight fight!! lol, dont fight o i love u guys both!
MIA.. what's that?
linda, you are good and beautiful find something doing to your status. "go and marry" simple.from your fan
Simple Linda. Good News is a bad news, whilst Bad News is always a good news. And it's just like that all over the world.
heheheh we believe in bad tinz dan gud tinz like wise we believe in bad news dan gud news.
Simply because very few people has good heart, and even those with one are choked.People tend to hear your sad moment to compensate their wrongs.
goes they worth more learning from. #na.metalkam
Linda, u have made a fortune from posting gossips about people's'lifestyles... I guess ure an expert then on this matter!!! Guess if u followed RMD's'advice, u'd'be avn ur 5th child as a 2nd wife in a man's'house. To answer ur question, "Americans were able to make tv viewers happy by showing other people suffer (punkd, cops, standups, etc)" sure dts a normal trend worldwide.
The reason why bad news travels quicker than good news is because the predominant psyche governing the atmosphere on earth is negative and sensitive to negativism, in addition humankind by virtue of its nature and inclination has a definitely dark side seeking for some form of recognition in lieu of evil .The prince of the world (Satan)has some influence of which only God through regenerated human kind through Christ can subdue.The world is governed by fear ,uncertainty and is fuelled by taking more than you can give so the direction of the dominant psyche of most of human kind is by nature evil and wicked. According to genesis after the flood God said to Noah that although the inclination of humankind is towards evil seed time and harvest will never cease.The heart of humankind is desperately wicked according to Pauls account in the book of Acts.
I think pple love to say bad things about odas cos it distracts them from the misery in their lyfs, besides if i said to you 'i jst lost a friend' you wld sympathise wit me but if I told u i jst won a million dollars, i stand the risk of sounding boastful
Linda you know i actually have not really given this a thought but i feel bad news tend to travel fast becos its human nature to spread bad news besides the human nature is adverse to good news we tend to love bad news Linda we can not actually explain these phenomenon i call it a phenomenon becos its quite un explainable bad news just trend a whole lot more than good news.by the way were are u going why are u going Awol oh i get it you have a date and your going for a quickie aint that nice do come back and post more stories for us jare
To those who may not understand, "MIA for few hours" means getting "licky licky under" plus other things that follow. Linda is human too so all should understand.
It trends because people love controversy. By the way your feud with RMD is not bad news.
When you say news is bad is depends on the perspective by which you classify it as either bad or good news.A bad news will definitely spread like wild fire if there is a touch of sensationalism in it and if it does involve public figures.However, good news can attract such attention but human psychological get to wants to be entertained by the bad news the more.Good job Linda. I'm a blogger as well.I write on fitness and healthCheck out Abs Workout
Bad news travel fast because any thing bad is done easily why good things take time to build.GET ALL NIGERIA UNIVERSITIES ADMISSION NEWS
Wow!, she looks radiant!ME
Bad news tends to be more interesting than good news...If u read these two headlines in aFast rising nollywood Actor Khing Bassey stars in a movie with Genevieve NnajiorUpcoming Nollywood actor Khing Bassey Slaps Genevieve Nnaji while filming a new movie...which one will you read first?
it is only in nigeria that bad news travel faster than good news and that is why we aint never gonna develop....harrison
Ok...let me see..good news is no news& bad news is news??? Let me watch out for other comments...lol.
Lyntroy said.......wat sot of jamb question in ican klass is dis,ok bad new travel fast cos linda is a tatafo and amebo,kapish.
Linda u nvr still finish 4 MIA? Haba gist dey hungry my ear ooo
Its just something you cant explain. Just as it is boring to sit in church for few hours Vs sitting in club for several hours.Also reading bible Vs reading entertainment magazines. For students, its easier to read novels Vs Textbooks. Its Mysterious.
abi u go see ur boyfriend
@Linda, did ur man/boy friend come arnd??? Hehehehehe
u sef follow dey spread the bad news Linda.... na u carry am for head..
Because most pple are evil and they like to spread bad news!As for ur MIA situation,are u getting some,if yes,whew!at last,we'll rest from all the men and their 'weapon'!
evil is resident in man as sin(noun a thing) so evil news is appealing to man because of the evil.
It's fun at times to gossip about bad things and as we all know gossip helps spread news. It is therefore logical to imagine that bad news will travel faster than good news.
lol @ RMD tells Linda to get a life. I love the way you handle criticisms.
Kno say cos e go sound strange
Your blog is getting borring dis days..4 More than 4hs no update..too bad
Few hours Linda? Turning to more like a whole day, 24 hours to be more specific. Please come back, I'm having jitters. LOL
if u ask me na who i go ask?
who cares? But really, props to the Okoye Lad.Taye says so...
The answer is that simple"People will broadcast your failure, but whisper your progress"
Linda, Bad news travels faster especially if its news about an important or good person.GOOD+BAD= STRANGE NEWSBut bad news about bad people does'nt look strange to people because BAD+BAD=BAD ..no difference
Lol. Na so we human beings be.
I think it is because that's what people like hearing.The human nature is bad and Man is desperately wicked.As a result,naturally,people like hearing the downfall of an opponent or failure of a rival than hearing their success tales...That's my opinion.
Cos.common pple always keep there ears to bad news.
Hmm..interesting questn...cos pple(except me) always want 2 bring dwn odaz...so dy always luk 4 loopz holez..n once dy find it...hmm...#CHOKOLATA#..dats wassup!
Mayb bcos we react 2 it more faster than good news.*dont really no*sobbing*
LOL. You seem like a very oblivious person Linda. I remember it was you from who I even heard the name k-solo yet alone the anectode in k-solo's reckless lifestyle. You should re-quote this blog to "Why do I like to Spread bad news faster than good news" or why do I like to start unneccessary controversies. We all know you only think of "big packages" and with that your stick like physique a "big package" will just rip you apart. Have a nice day :)
rnt u the press?ur asking question.
THE MAIN REASON IS BECAUSE ALLOT OF PEOPLE RE HAPPIER WHEN BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO YOU THAN THEY ARE WHEN YOU ARE HAPPY OR GOOD THINK HAPPEN . BAD BELLE PEOPLE ARE EVERY WHERE. GOD SAVE US.
Because they are more bad people than good
A teacher asked her class what they want to be when they grow up. Theo: I want to be a billionaire, have the cutest wife, make love to her 3 times a day, fly her in my private jet to Milan for shopping, take her on monthly trips to different places around the world. The teacher ignores Theo for his bad behaviour and asks Mary what she wants to be when she grows up. Mary quietly whispered: I want to be Theo's wife
U don find that boby from portugal wey hide snake for im tights???
Bad news is like having good sex frm a whore,she sells!
Nobody cld say it better, the bible said that the heart of man is desperately wicked!
Egbami am coming naija next month

Hmmm so sorry about dat sir! Welcome to naija where only bad things trend.. Its been happening for years Απϑ pple have been complaining still nothing iڪ done. Linda abeg help open FAAN nyash ooh. Enuf of all these rubbish
If a dog bites a man its no news, but when a man bite a dog its 'HOT' news. Good news is normal, BAD news sells any publisher can testify this.
As the cliche in Journalism goes, "it leads that bleeds". I think its just part of our human nature to feed on negative/violent/gory stories. Linda, I hope this would accord me a debut, i don tire to be a substitute.
The reason is that bad thing are one kind sweet for mouth and good for the ear
Hey! Dnt make us look bad than other part of the world
