Posted on

Welcome to BuzzFeed Dot Com, The Website: The Podcast!

This is a new project geared towards sharing what's going on at BuzzFeed with our global team. In this (first-ever!) episode, Summer talks about what BFF is and how it got so awesome, as well as her early days at BuzzFeed and her favorite BuzzFeed post of all time.

Summer Anne Burton is Editorial Director of BuzzFeed Distributed (aka BFF).

Summer basically grew up on the internet and has been playing with different social platforms all her life.

Like some of us, she had a MySpace page. She also has a cool project called Every Hall of Famer, featuring her drawings of every baseball player to be named to the Hall of Fame.

After holding many roles at BuzzFeed over the last few years, Summer now leads the team of social web writers and artists who make up BFF.

Look at those charming characters!


The team is trying out content on a range of platforms. Here are some of their hits from Facebook...

Twitter isn't a huge audience for BFF, but it's a good place to test out ideas and get quick feedback.


Out of office email: too hot to work
