past few years, social media has completely changed the way people spread and
find information as well as news, making it a lot easier for news industries to
target particular populations. Websites such as Buzz feed are getting more and
more famous as their aim is not only to write news stories, but also to create
new entertainment, with the use for example of cat videos and cute puppies. However,
Buzz feed raises an issue which is whether it is a reliable source or not. According
to an article broadcasted by Megan Poczos in the University of Wisconsin’s the
Racquet, she stated that “A lot of articles posted on buzz feed are opinion
based articles”(Poczos, 2015).With that statement, she says clearly
that most things that are on the website’s content is not reliable because
opinioniated pieces are not objective.
Therefore, readers can grasp an idea of the story instead of telling it again. An
example of this is that someone could write who they think will win the presidential
election, and who they like better instead of finding the facts and evidence to
actually prove their point.
