    Once you've signed up and are logged in to your BuzzFeed account, you can earn trophies, aka digital badges, that will be displayed on your profile page for all to see:

    These are the trophies you'll earn for getting your Friends or The Office post promoted.

    🏆 How do I earn trophies? 🏆

    There are many ways to earn a trophy, including, but not limited to:

    ✏️ Creating a BuzzFeed post or quiz

    😱 Standing out to our editors and getting your post promoted to the homepage*

    🌟Writing a post about a certain topic, like Marvel, Taylor Swift, Friends, and more, and getting it promoted to the homepage — oh, and we can't list every single trophy theme here, because *some* element of surprise is always exciting! ;)

    💯 Earning 250k, 500k, and 1 million views on a post you wrote

    💻 Receiving a certain amount of hearts from other users on a comment you've written

    *Please note, if your post or quiz is selected to get featured across BuzzFeed's network, our editors may make a few edits to it to reflect the BuzzFeed style and tone! This includes edits to some copy and images (for more on image FAQs, check out this helpful guide)!

    Once you earn a trophy, you'll earn Internet Points (learn more below) and the trophy will appear on your profile. Check out this BuzzFeeder's profile as an example!
