They're just playing the long con and setting us up for the biggest click-bait article ever.

Let the record show that I called it first

I hate that the Buzzfeed style clickbait has infected other places

I didn't think it could get worse, but what I saw next left me speechless.

By nature shit like Buzzfeed will stop being vogue once memes and comedy news comes up mocking them. It's a bad investment.

Buzzfeed has ruined the internet.

It wasn't the first place doing clickbait, or easy to digest list style content, but it took the formula, dumbed it down, and marketed it to a new generation of internet users.

Remember Cracked? That was a decent enough site for the time being - it had a good formula of list style content of interesting things, with a couple of paragraphs of exposition on the thing so that you knew what length of content you were getting into. I enjoyed reading that site for a good couple of years.

Then Buzzfeed popped up. It had the same formula as Cracked but the articles were literally incredibly to the point - instead of the numbered lists having exposition, they'd have a simple photo or one sentence. It's easy to see why this format became popular - it was simple to read for people and with the rise of mobile internet people would just want easy articles to browse on the bus.

The problem is when other sites saw the success of the Buzzfeed formula and started applying it to them. Now even respected newspapers are doing lazy, list based content for people to eat up in bite sized chunks. Everything is clickbait. Everything is segmented into "5 things we learned about…" , "7 things you'll know if …" . All

It was bound to happen as middle aged mums and 16 year old girls and the like started to use the internet more and peoples internet habits started to change (based on mobile internet mainly), but it sucks that it has dumbed down and ruined a lot of great sites who don't write normal articles any more but simply regurgitate bite sized clickbaity lists.

Buzzfeed might die, but now the internet has been Buzzfeedified, I'm not sure if its going back.

Buzzfeed is lame but it never comes up in my life

The new thing for fb people is sharing that tasty thing which is usually just a minute long video of somebullshit food no one is actually going to make that they tag a million people in and say "OMG"

Tho I wouldn't be surprised if tasty was a part if buzzfeed and it amuses me that the UK equivalent is called "proper tasty"

Tasty is a part of buzzfeed I'm pretty sure

Also all the food is proper fucking disgusting like cheese is not a substitute for flavourings u cunts

Wait, Buzzfeed actually makes money?

I used to like Buzzfeed. A few years ago it actually was a decent site with interesting articles about actual issues and fun quizzes and so on.

Now it just spews forth garbage day in day out, full of clickbait, not to mention the rampant sexism that occurs....I'm talking about the articles that will usually tell women that it's sinful for a man to tell them they're attractive and whatnot, but it's perfectly OK to put up articles talking about The Rock's "bulge" in a Superman suit, or "What Disney Prince should you name your Boyfriend's Dick after?", the blatant racism (Google "Buzzfeed White People" and see what comes up) also makes it the arsehole of the internet as well. I wouldn't mind it so much if they were aware of their own hypocrisy, but the fact that no one at that fucking website understands any of those concepts just makes it worse.

a buzzfeed page that post buzzfeed videos, linking to a buzzfeed article that is a compilation of the videos already posted on said buzzfeed page

it's not about being elitist

buzzfeed is shitty populist content

there's much better content out there and buzzfeedication is spoiling that for people who want a bit more than 10 gifs with captions as "an article"

7 Reasons Why I Don't Like Thing!

1. I don't like thing

2. Thing is something I don't like

3. Of all the things I like, thing is not one them

4. If life had a 'Like' button, I would not apply it to thing. Because I don't like thing

5. On a list of things I don't like, thing appears. Click here to see where!

6. Thing has some qualities which cause me to not like thing

7. I don't like thing

I had no idea buzzfeed was a site people visited, I mean I've seen their clickbait screen capped when they have an article that pisses off whatever 4chan board I happen to be browsing, but I imagined they were like, a company ran by 4 people who outsourced all the articles to pay the bills, not a multimillion dollar company.

I started fighting the clickbait titles a while ago, by just never clicking them. I used to do it before when some of my friends linked that shit or something, but I just completely utterly stopped. I hate it and I want it to die out. The faster the better.
