Buzzfeed, anyone else remember how we got our information beforehand?
Nope, me either.
Here's a Buzzfeed inspired list to explain how Buzzfeed killed the Internet for me and others like me.
It's 1am, you've checked Twitter, Facebook, your texts, it's now time to sleep, you will just have a quick check of Buzzfeed.........
SEVEN HOURS LATER.
You may not have slept, but you've now seen everything the world has to offer. Congratulations, I would tell you to sleep but Buzzfeed just updated and you now have to learn the Internet ALL over again!!!
You read an article elsewhere, THERE ARE NO GIFS!! How are you meant to process the valuable information without it being accompanied by an actress from mean girls rolling her eyes? Sigh.
We have the attention span of goldfish, Buzzfeed know this and wave GIFs in our faces like they are dealing with toddlers. We need to giggle at GIFs.
Information broken down into lists? Yes please. Can we get this for everything? 15 reasons why I should not go to work today? 10 things I can do with mashed potatoes? 5 reasons why Doogie Howser is the best Doctor ever? The lists are endless, and secretly we love them.
How else would anyone know what character from The Simpsons you were? Or which cartoon dog you are? Or even what part of the country you live in? You link it through to your twitter (other social media also available) and give minutes later you see other people linking it too, it's like the least harmful chain letter in the world! (I was Cleetus, oh the shame)
Where else can you rank something as WOW, or, LOL or WTF?
Buzzfeed know that we don't have time to comment, (we are too busy reading GIF filled lists to do that) instead we can just click a button to say how we feel.
I cannot be alone in wishing that The Daily Mail did that instead of having a comments section, can I?
So that's five ways that Buzzfeed killed the Internet, or is that, five ways that Buzzfeed are killing it on the Internet.
Can you think of any others?
Are you a fan of Buzzfeed?
Let me know, I'm off to watch Ron Jeremy perform Wrecking Ball,
Never change, Buzzfeed. Never change.
