You see, it's not always some grand gesture that goes viral; sometimes it's something a whole lot simpler.
Take this humble cereal box, for instance, which has now found online fame after a woman in Ramsbottom, Lancashire, realised there's more to the everyday item than meets the eye.
TikTok user Katy (@katybee2020) filmed herself closing her cereal box in an innovative way that most of us have never seen in action, let alone thought to do.
It involves folding the larger flaps down into the box and bending the sides inwards, in turn creating a neat curved top.
In theory, it closes the box more securely, in turn ensuring your cereal never goes stale.
Katy - who said she found out about the hack years ago when Kellogg's printed it on some of its packaging - originally posted the video on Facebook, but later shared it on TikTok after she joined the platform, writing: "You've been doing it wrong all this time!"
In the clip, which has more than 928,000 views and 188,000 likes, Katy also advised that it helps if you 'don't tear the card when you open it'.
Katy, 37, told LADbible: "It was years ago when Kellogg's once put instructions on their Cornflakes. I'd say a good 10 years back.
"I originally made the video on Facebook. But like masses of people I joined TikTok out of boredom.
"My friends think it's hilarious. I was so shocked it took off. No make-up on, and I said 'Ceweal' so I'm sort of gutted!"
In a follow-up video, Katy showed us once again how to do the trick (this time on a box of Weetos), also responding people who suggested it was a waste of time.
"People saying 'Oh, aint nobody got time for that', it doesn't take long," she said in the footage.
"And let's be honest, guys: all we have is time at the moment!"
I mean, she's not wrong.
