50 million reasons the media needs to stop thinking Buzzfeed is only lists

BuzzFeed got some money. The New York Times headline was predictable: “50 Million New Reasons BuzzFeed Wants to Take Its Content Far Beyond Lists

Ha! Ha! Ha!

It’s BuzzFeed right? And all they do is lists, right?

Ha! Ha! Ha!

I mean, unless y’know, you check out their homepage.

I went down it as far as the first break, seeing whether BuzzFeed may have already taken content “far beyond” lists.



Write about BuzzFeed and pretending it only does lists is talking down to the audience. And it is indicative, I suspect, of one of the reasons that BuzzFeed consistently out-performs mainstream media on social platforms.
