Buzz feedhas taken the internet by blast, the website is one of the fastest growing, Havingthe internet on it’s side Buzz feed is constentley winning with the fake newsthat they spread and the audience believe the fake-ness and that benefits the company,the news is easily asseessible and they post 4 times a day which would catchanyone’s eye. The issue that buzz feed has is that when reading and goingthrough the articles there are no references left behind as Megan Poczos states’Another problem with Buzz feed has with credibility is that they rarely ifever credit their sources in their articles’.
(Poczos, 2015) Any user that is active and registered, BuzzFeed allows them to create posts of their own, by having this put in place itcreates a great way for people to get involved and be a part of something, butat the same time it leaves room for mistakes and fake news. ‘Meagan Poczozstates ‘It leaves a lot of room for unprofessional, unaccredited and untruewriting’ (Poczos, 2015) With Buzz Feed anyone can write anything they want and aboutwhatever subject they feel is necessary to them, people just want to get theirviews and opinions across to others and because of that it will leave theaudience wondering, Can Buzz Feed be trusted as a reliable source. Many of theheadlines have a bad words having provocative images and bad content. Thataside, admittedly it is entertaining and it does a good job of keeping peopleinterested in the site what is posted up on the site keeps the viewersinterested and with that in notion it will always be there, Although what is onthe site may not always be true it does what it needs to do in the content ofkeeping the audience at bay, and keeping them interested and if that is thetype of things that the viewers are looking for then by all means that’s theplace to be, but looking for more up to date content and real news, then startby looking at the news channels.
