Over thepast few years, social media has completely changed the way people spread andfind information as well as news, making it a lot easier for news industries totarget particular populations. Websites such as Buzz feed are getting more andmore famous as their aim is not only to write news stories, but also to createnew 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.
Accordingto an article broadcasted by Megan Poczos in the University of Wisconsin’s theRacquet, she stated that “A lot of articles posted on buzz feed are opinionbased articles”(Poczos, 2015).With that statement, she states clearlymost of the website’s content is not reliable because opinion based articlesare not objective. Therefore, the reader gets an idea of a story instead actuallyretelling it. An example of this is that someone could write who they thinkwill win the presidential election, and who they like better instead of findingthe facts and evidence to actually prove their point.
