Today’s Articles of Interest from Around the Internets

 


 

1. BuzzFeed: we report news differently now – but is it better?

BuzzFeed has grown from a gleam in its founder’s eye to employing 550 staff in New York, London, Paris and Sydney. It stands at number 12 on Quantcast’s monthly US top 100 unique visitors table: far ahead of the New York Times (59) or the Guardian (97); and 13 million uniques a month in the UK make it a potent force to be reckoned with here too.
