When I click 'like' on his update, my entire network will be notified about Shiraz' job search through me. If he gets 10 people clicking 'like' you're looking at a potential reach of about 2,000 LinkedIn users (as most LinkedIn users have around 200 connections).
Is this what they mean by going viral'? Well, this is how viral starts. If clicks carry on you get the snowball effect of free advertising.
