Veronica Belmont is a web video star (and #1 sexiest woman in tech — haha), Ze Frank is Ze F**king Frank, Cory Archangel is an international art star (MoMA, Guggenheim, Whitney), and our own Peggy Wang is BuzzFeed’s founding editor and a rock star who is currently touring every major city in the US and Europe with her band The Pains of Being Pure at Heart.
Over the next few months, the guest stars will experiment and play on BuzzFeed. Our tech team works really hard building our platform — adding features like quizzes, top lists, badges, image/video responses, contests, and a bunch of other things that are still in the works. The guest stars will see if they can use these tools in new ways, create original posts, and give us advice about new directions for the future.
It is just the beginning but they have already gotten started. You can go to their profiles to see what Veronica and Cory have been doing. Ze Frank has already made the first installment in the Hard Times series and ghost written the Ashton cares post. And Peggy is posting from her tour — you can follow her here.
This is a new BF program and it will evolve over the next few months. We want to add more stars in the future so if you have suggestions for people we should invite, please post them below.
Welcome Veronica, Ze, Cory, and Peggy!
