BUZZFEED RESPONDS **** TO FACEBOOK'S CHANGES

BUZZFEED RESPONDS PERFECTLY TO FACEBOOK'S CHANGES

"Interest in news is greater than ever before, and we want to assure our loyal readers—and ones we haven't yet reached—that these changes will not affect our ability to connect with and deliver for them," a BuzzFeed spokeswoman said in an e-mail statement. She declined to elaborate.

"Consumers are spending less time with the platform as they have become more aware of fake news on the platform, the toxicity of commentary that can exist," says Brian Wieser, senior research analyst at Pivotal.

Did we not have a thread on this yet? I thought we did but couldn't find it.

Here's zuckerburg's post:

I made it about five lines in to this point before the BS detector closed it out:
"But recently we've gotten feedback from our community that public content -- posts from businesses, brands and media -- is crowding out the personal moments that lead us to connect more with each other. "

Yeah, b/c who wants brand and business messaging getting in the way of that toxicity and vitriol access. People need it in their veins and this is too much distraction.

Too often, I'd rather see ads.
