So... BuzzFeed, eh? The home of the listicle launches in Canada
Ridiculous? Maybe. But highly share-able.
After just a few days online, that video has already been viewed well over a million times and climbing on BuzzFeed's YouTube channel. And those kind of numbers are par for the course at Buzzfeed -- proving they know how to create content that works on the internet, ridiculous or not.
We're talking about BuzzFeed today because starting tomorrow, the new media titan officially launches its Canadian operations.... which will go by the name of BuzzFeed Canada.
To steer the new Northern operation, Buzzfeed has tapped Craig Silverman. He's known to journalists for his blog Regret the Error, which tracks media mistakes and mea culpas, as well as his website Emergent, which monitors viral rumours online.
This segment was produced by The Current's Howard Goldenthal.
