In this episode, we analyze BuzzFeed as a New Media publication. We discuss BuzzFeed’s user experience with our personal experiences. With the materials published on BuzzFeed and the articles we have collected, we analyze whether BuzzFeed could be viewed as a real high-quality journalism standard, how BuzzFeed, as a form of New Media, differentiates itself from Old media, and where BuzzFeed would take us to in the future. Hope you enjoy this!
