Use tumblr as an indicator for pics to go viral?

    So, I'm not that used to tumblr, but I got my pics from there. Maybe somebody can enlighten me here, regarding my idea. As you all may know, there is the number of "notes", like how many times the pic got liked, reposted and stuff. When I browse some accs, I see average notes between 100-1000. Sometimes, you can find pics with 5k notes. This means, the pic got liked and reposted more times than the average. Am I right? Regarding this, the pic did go viral on tumblr, right? The gap between an average of 200 notes, compared to one pic that pops up with 5k notes is really crazy, thats why I'm wondering.

    When I see, that the pic was loved on tumblr (as I can see in the notes that are way higher than the average), than there must be the opportunity that it will be loved by my followers on insta and may go viral? Is my thinking right? Or is there no way to compare tumblr with insta, so that you cant use the notes as an indicator? Anybody who uses this "strategy" or tried it out? :)

    No, not really. I almost have all of my pictures from tumblr and what goes viral on tumblr doesn't necessarily need to go viral on Insta. It's just different audience.
