On alerts v2, you'll have more flexibility to define when to be alerted about viral stories. 

First of all, you can tailor your settings towards two dimensions: Time & Engagement. 

This means that you can set up rules based on the engagement your content had over a specific period of time. 

Time dimension covers:

  • Daily, Weekly & Monthly visits;

whereas engagement dimension covers:

  • Shares
  • Referrals,
  • Share Rate, and
  • Virality Score

Combine the two of them, and you can come up with a query like: "Alert me about any article with more than 10,000 visits this week and more than 1,000 shares on Facebook or 500 shares on Twitter."
