The Virality of a BuzzFeed Post

As of yesterday, I went back on to BuzzFeed to test out some content. I am really interested in the whole “listicle” concept and what works and what doesn’t. I logged back on today to see not too much action on my post from yesterday. So as of today, I’ve written a new one.

Yesterday I wrote: “6 Unavoidable Feelings When Trying To Avoid Someone“. This has only racked up 11 views as of right now. Here’s a quick overview of the post:

I’ve shared it through text, and Twitter. I was pretty happy to see that 11 people had actually taken the time to look at it. But I hope to be able to rack up more views as time goes on.

Today I wrote:  “10 Items You Can Buy To Annoy Your Coworkers“. Posted 44 minutes ago, it has so far only racked up 6 views. Here’s an overview:

This has only been shared through Twitter (and now WordPress). I am hoping to have more success with this too.

All in all, I’ll keep updating the stats on my experiment. I would encourage you to share the articles if you like, and see if we can get the ball rolling.

So, if you’re interested in checking out my articles, here they are again:

I’d love to hear if you’ve tried your hand at writing any BuzzFeed posts and your success stories. Let me know in the comments!
