  • Cheat at Viral Predictions With New Stats!

    We here at BuzzFeed have a confession to make. When we launched the Viral Prediction Game a few weeks ago some of us were using our cool internal stats tools to cheat. After reprimanding those responsible we thought: what if we gave everyone a little peak into how our viral tracking works? Well, now you can cheat too! Homepage posts with enough traffic will have a “View More Stats” button. Click it to see how much viral traffic it has, a graph of the Viral Lift for the last 3 days, and a few of the top referrers. You can’t tell for sure if it’s going to go viral, of course, but you can see if it’s getting any traction. It’s not really cheating if everyone’s doing it, right? View Image ›

  • New Feature! Viral Reactions!!!

    We’re adding entries to the reaction stream for a post when we detect that it’s going viral and taking off online! Now, incoming links, tweets, searches, and other viral activity will be mixed in with your contributions, hearts and LOLs, so you can see when and how a post is taking off on Facebook, Twitter, and blogs. We’re super excited about this new feature and would love to hear what you think! Check it out and let us know! View Image ›
