Now, as the company is reaching a size where it has to act like a real business, Peretti is finding ways to harness the chaos, just enough, to cross-pollinate ideas across departments. It was all seed. The fun in the game is getting people to share something. I click on shit all the time. Editor-in-chief Ben Smith manages the journalists.
She is, however, entrusted with figuring out how articles and videos travel across all the platforms where BuzzFeed plays. Andrew, the engineer, and Adam, the data scientist, explain that Pound is a way for BuzzFeed to understand how people share content across different social networks. Collecting massive amounts of data over time has allowed BuzzFeed to learn, among other things, that while ideas get an early start on Twitter, they go wide and become popular on Facebook which is what Stopera understood about hoverboards.
But Pound is just one piece of an even more audacious data initiative called Hive that promises to make its editorial content more shareable than ever.
No one—not Peretti, Nguyen, or anyone else—actually has an exact idea how many pieces of content BuzzFeed creates or where it all gets published. A seven-step web recipe for slow-cooker chicken becomes a second Facebook video, and then a second Instagram clip with the instructions written as a comment, and finally a Pinterest post with two images and a link back to the Facebook video. Hive will speed the editorial evolution of popular ideas like this one.
How BuzzFeed’s Jonah Peretti Is Building A Year Media Company
From a technical perspective, Hive is both simple—maybe five tables in a relational database—and absurdly abstract. One diagram Kelly shows me has a pipe labeled pixie dust as well as an animated Super Mario jumping up and down on part of it.
Like its approach to different social networks, BuzzFeed aims to create something organic in each global market rather than simply translating an article into another language. Better that BuzzFeed find content in far-flung locales that appeals to everyone across the globe. Peretti, channeling Marshall McLuhan, believes BuzzFeed will succeed globally because of the rise of postliterate media.
Or a Nicki Minaj video. He figured out that the photos were coming from his old iPhone, which he had lost in a bar a year earlier, so he wrote a story about it. A few hours after it was published, the story was translated into Chinese and posted to Weiboa Twitter-like service in China which at the time had million monthly active users.
Weibo users tracked down the guy in the photo with the orange tree, Li Hongjun, and brokered an introduction to Stopera, who bought a plane ticket to China and, a few weeks later, landed in the Meizhou prefecture where he was met at the airport by a mob of reporters.
What is BuzzFeed?
They held press conferences, planted an orange tree, took a mud bath together, posed for photos with babies, and rode around in a car with their faces painted on its side. At one point, Stopera inadvertently endorsed a few liquor products.
The BuzzFeed post on Weibo about their first meeting racked up 70 million views, and the duo appeared together on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. The tale of the lost-iPhone-turned-heartwarming-bromance is soon to become a feature-length documentary, produced by BuzzFeed Motion Pictures.
