BuzzFeed Update: Feature-iffic!

Posted on November 14, 2007

It is surprising but I haven’t written anything about BuzzFeed since I have been here and it has been a month and half so far. This post is a long time coming.

As you can imagine we have all been super busy at BuzzFeed HQ lately. On the development side we have been constantly pumping out new integrations. You can now get BuzzFeed content in Pageflakes, Netvibes, iGoogle and on your apple dashboard. You can also get updates in your favorite feed reader, e-mail service, mobile phone and via twitter.

The most recent addition was our typepad and blogger integration. No, if you have a typepad or blogger blog, you can simply add the widget to your site with about one click.

These integrations are the tip of the iceberg though. We have a lot of ideas and new features coming out soon including a lot of things that will add value for publishers using the BuzzFeed widget (hint: start using the widget now so you can be the first to get the new stuff). I can’t say much more than that right now but I think you will all like what we’re putting together.

On a more academic note: we’ve really been pushing the boundaries of our back end algorithms and optimization technology. Frankly some of the stuff we’ve built around our own organic content and producing it is pretty cool and hasn’t been done before (at least not to my knowledge). Who knows, that could be big for us too.

A blog is also in the works so you’ll eventually be able to see how weird we all are, oh, and the unsolicited rap video we were sent (Press/Play Hotline baby! It’s pretty ill.) which is awesome. Who wouldn’t love to get a freestyle rap about their company in their e-mail? I’m down with that fo’ sho’ or something like that.

No speaking engagements coming up for me although speaking at Blog World last week was a lot of fun. I finally got to become a Lijit Wijit (yeah, I am a Lijit fanboy) which was pretty awesome as well. Not to mention that I got to finally meet Fraser, a guy I have corresponded with for about two years after we both found each others blogs, for the first time. We hung out with some friends for the night and it was like we had known each other for years. Funny thing that internet. He’s now at Adaptive Blue and kicking some ass. He’ll soon to be moving to NYC as well. Watch out! NYC is starting to really break out as a tech hub!

More updates to come very soon including more on the big idea behind BuzzFeed which is our word-of-mouth marketing platform. Until then, check out BuzzFeed.com each and everyday for your pop culture fix (and subscribe), tell your friends about it and add our widget to your blog (please).

    Thanks for the BuzzFeed update. I've been meaning to check that out. It was good to meet you last night at TechCocktail.
