How To Succeed On BuzzFeed

Though it is hard to predict what will go viral on the internet, there are a few tricks that every BuzzFeeder should know.

  • Hyperbole

    Because if everything is important, then nothing is.

  • Nostalgia

    Can you really be nostalgic about your childhood if you never actually grew up? Never mind.

  • Palin is teh dumb lol!!1!

    For some reason, BuzzFeed patrons seem to slant somewhat left of centre. "Ten reasons why Obama hates white people" probably wouldn't go down so well.

  • Naked celebrities

    While it is true that this is a left-leaning, politically correct web site, fortunately this doesn't extent to the objectification of women.

  • Tautologies

    The amazing thing about this rhetorical device is that it was not only funny the first time someone did it, but it is still hilarious after a million times!

  • Memes

    Combining two or more is particularly effective. It doesn't have to make any sense, or even be funny. All that matters is that you are proving your familiarity with the codes of the internet culture.
