Skam is a Norwegian teen drama television series depicting the lives of students studying Hartvig Nissen School. In Nordic countries, Skam became instantly popular after the first episode's release and has since broken various broadcasting records in Norway and other countries.

In 2016, the show gained sudden popularity with English and other international viewers after fansubs were uploaded to Google Drive accounts and spread across Tumblr. The show then became a viral sensation and trended several times on both Tumblr and Twitter.

The effect that had was really interesting, because watching Skam could inherently never be a solitary experience, like binge-watching on Netflix. It relied on a crowdsourced translation, an international fan community that would share and spread new clips.[1]
