BuzzFeed launched a new vertical today called Community, which allows anyone to contribute content to the site. BuzzFeed is known for its diverse content, putting journalistic political pieces side-by-side with top-10 lists about animals and 20-something life. Community’s now a one-stop shop for all of the BuzzFeed readership’s articles, GIFs, videos, and more. Community Contributors are also able to submit one post a day for editors’ consideration as a feature.
Top users, based on reactions and comments, are listed on the side of the page and are given “Cat Power” for solid posting and more privileges.
BuzzFeed’s Community also allows the rest of us to play a new fun game called “Did BuzzFeed pay someone to write this list, or was it user-submitted?” Can you guess?
BUZZFEED OR USER-SUBMITTED?
