BUZZFEED LAUNCHES UNIQUE CONTENT PARTNERSHIP WITH AOL
AOL Content to Appear on BuzzFeed.com Alongside Related Viral Content
NEW YORK, NY – July 15, 2010 – BuzzFeed today announced a unique related-content partnership with AOL that will give its users instant access to AOL’s most followed content across all of BuzzFeed.com. Every BuzzFeed.com page will now feature dedicated thumbnail links to related and viral stories from leading AOL sites including AOL News, Urlesque, Asylum, Lemondrop and others.
BuzzFeed’s Viral Analytics code will identify popular AOL content related to the viral and frequently shared content that appears dynamically on BuzzFeed.com and link to those stories on its website. For example, if an item on Lady Gaga appears on BuzzFeed, users will find AOL’s hottest Lady Gaga content alongside it.
“BuzzFeed identifies the most viral and shared content across the web. Through this partnership, BuzzFeed readers will discover the very best AOL content the moment it starts spreading on Twitter, Facebook, blogs, and the rest of the social web,” said Jonah Peretti, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of BuzzFeed.
“BuzzFeed is doing something very special in tracking viral content at the publisher level,” said David Eun, . ”AOL is committed to partnering with and nurturing promising start-ups, and we’re excited by the promise of this unique merger of BuzzFeed technology with the depth and quality of relevant content from AOL.”
