very nice, rlly only the quizzes. and wish i could search for quizzes only and have separate search things for different sections, and put in requests for quizzes! but love them
Images almost never load 1/5
Images almost never load correctly on the mobile app, making it impossible to read articles that are image-based, such as a collection of posts about cats
Nice app 5/5
I love the design of the app and the save article feature
Unconvinced Amazon and the Kardashians Aren’t Sponsors 1/5
Half of their content seems to focus on Amazon or that family. It’s hard to take Buzzfeed seriously when so much of your content is about that family (quite frankly I’m tired of hearing/reading about them) and when all of the products you recommend are direct links to Amazon. Does your company hold stock in Amazon? How much $ do you receive every time someone purchased something on Amazon from your links? It also seems disingenuous to recommend eco friendly products on Amazon knowing the environmental cost associated with their shipping.
Everything is an ad 2/5
This app has changed over the past couple of years, and it has become one giant platform for ads. Every other “article” is a shopping guide, and every other “quiz” is an ad for a store where you pick a few items from Store X to see whether you’ll find love next year (rolls eyes). I understand that Buzzfeed has to make money and that it is a business, but c’mon. I feel bombarded with ads to buy this and that, like I’m not already flooded with ads from everywhere else. The quality of content has gone down despite their growing presence as real journalists. I’m happy that Buzzfeed is growing, but they need to stop treating their readers and viewers like a heard of cash cows. The Buzzfeed I knew and grew to love is now gone, and I am left disappointed and annoyed every time I open the app.
TDLR: this app is just posts and posts of ads, with a chunk of non-ad posts being content reposted from Twitter and Tumblr, and a hint of news articles that you can get on Twitter.
Buzzfeed has gone downhill 1/5
Buzzfeed never really had a lot of super original content but there’s hardly any actual content at all any more. It’s all just lists of products that they collect ad revenue from, disguised as actual articles. Everything on the “trending” is just ads. Super annoying.
Hate trending videos and new version crashes a lot 1/5
Tons of flaws that they won’t fix 1/5
By The Tootapoota
Where do I begin? I am currently trying to make my own contribution but they never get featured regardless of how good legit they are; unlike the typical tedious “Choose This and We’ll Give You This” articles. You need this thing called “Cat power”, and what do you have to do to get cat power? FROM GETTING YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS FEATURED! I put hours into my work but these people just ignored its legitimacy and choose those stupid aforementioned “Do This and We’ll Give You This” posts that take most likely 10x less work than mine do. I’m working my butt off to get featured but Buzzfeed just wants to be Buzzfeed and do all the same stuff they always do. There are also the technical problems that come with the app, sometimes you automatically get logged out for no reason and unable to log back in, you can’t undo your likes or dislikes or delete your comments, and sometimes you can’t even reply to your own comment to explain an error you made (since you can’t delete them and start over). I tried to contact them numerous times about ALL of this and they literally never responded to me. It’s like they don’t even care about the users and they just want to keep their precious little website as it is
Buzzfeed has definitely gone down the crapper since it first started, but now there are ads that are just killing the app. Just like it’s recycled articles, it’s the worst.
Not without issues 3/5
So...many...crashes...with this version
Would be, could be 3/5
Buzzfeed would/could be a great site if they were not fixated on the Kardashians.
Hire Jake Laycock in LA and keep the talented deserving young man employed. 5/5
Hire Jake Laycock!!!!!!
Alex and Rie 5/5
I love Alex and Rie together
The new layout is awful
App Issues 4/5
Love reading the articles and just scrolling through everything but my app freezes a lot! I then have to close my app (while losing my place) and then wait to reopen it. This is very annoying.
Broken links and disappearing articles 2/5
By President Clinton II
It seems that half of the stories/pages I click on are defective and say “something went wrong.”
Also, every time I view something once, it seems I’m never able to open or search for it again...
Always interesting and well written 5/5
Many times during the week I check-in on what the reporters at Buzz Feed have discovered. I am never disappointed. They clearly have good news sources and the reporting skills to put out interesting content that’s often ahead of the pack.
Shopping section 1/5
The prices y’all give are never accurate once you click on site. It’s really annoying and misleading.
This app freezes every time I try to use it
I kept trying to login using my email address and my facebook account. i got an email confirmation that said i had been signed in but when i went to the app in didn't let me log in. My facebook account also said that i had been logged in but the app did not let me log in. All i wanted was to bookmark certain things but it wont let me log into my account so now buzzfeed has access to my email and facebook account and i still cant log in
I love this app for everything, tips, tricks, recipes, shopping and more ❤️ Thanks Buzzfeed
Excellent financial reporting! Kudos! 5/5
Russian and Trump money laundering schemes and the Trump Tower tie-in.
Next Quiz 1/5
I used to be able to go to the next quiz after taking one. What happened to that option??
Love the content but keeps crashing 2/5
Fix your app Buzzfeed. I can't use the app for more than a couple minutes without it crashing since the last update.
Beware, once you start browsing the BuzzFeed app you won't be able to stop! There is something for everyone-I'm in my forties and my family members from their 20s to their 70s enjoy sending posts back and forth to each other. My favorites are the sales and the animal posts-they always cheer me up if I'm having a down day! Love, love, love, this app!!
Seriously, this app and website is the biggest battery drain. My phone will go from 100% to 14% in twenty minutes of being on the site or in the app. I’m not even exaggerating.
Not enough diversity 1/5
Democratic Party is definitely favored. Mix it up.
If you want to hear about nothing other than the kartrashians and their ads this is the ap for you
The app freezes constantly and won’t unfreeze until you have to close the app then when I go back to the app I’ve lost my place because it reloads to the top.
Too much irrelevant stuff 4/5
I don’t look search the web for makeup and I don’t click on “how to” makeup stuff. Why am I seeing so much makeup stuff? Is Buzzfeed just doing a lot of makeup stuff? If so can I filter it out? Also I am kind of tired of clicking on something interesting that I THINK is a story and it turns out it’s just a writer reaching out asking questions so that they can write their next Buzzfeed.
Anyway I love this app! It has stories, funny stuff, news, and fun quizzes.
This app is so predictable and I just love it so much
Fun way to spend time 5/5
I really like buzzfeed because it’s a fun way to waste the day 🤣
Nothing more than a marketing tool for buyers and sellers 1/5
This app used to be fun and interesting, it has now clearly become a marketing tool for corporate sellers, using cartoon-quizzes to obtain info on the buyers and peddle even more products to the American consumer. You’ll be overwhelmed by the amount of retail oriented and store buying. This app is no more than a tool to obtain consumer information and to know which products to sell to you. Sure, a couple of funny articles but the rest of the content offered is all “buy this” and “big box retailer wants to know which leather wallet are you” Very poor performance, constant crashes and reloads, the whole experience is trash and I would never recommend this app to anyone older than 10 years old. What a way to destroy the app Buzzfeed - I will not be subjected to an endless stream of products to buy, buy, buy.
Ad overload 3/5
This app used to be so good until they started adding autoplaying video ads in between articles on the home and trending pages. I know that they need ads to survive but the sheer number of new ads lags the app and sometimes even causes it to crash. Tone it down please. Thanks.
If you need to switch apps—or even dismiss a notification, half the time—the app refreshes completely, so not only do you lose your place but you may lose the article you were reading altogether if it’s been moved around the home page, which happens constantly. Or it may have been renamed to get more clicks, which happens constantly. Or the app may crash, constantly. The content is often trash, but that’s the nature of the user-as-creator model. Recommendations increasingly feel like paid shills but aren’t labeled as such, which makes me suspicious. But none of that even matters if the app is constantly crashing, kicking me out of articles, and refuses to load instagram pics or tweets within articles, all of which happen SO many times in a 10-minute use that I’m just deleting. Not worth the frustration and battery drain.
Buzz or die you beezy 5/5
Swap News for more MORE shopping 1/5
Got a new update! Thanks, I hate it! 1/5
So many ads and still no autoplay for videos. I could deal with the dumb little adverts in the quizzes before, but the video ads stalling before videos that I have to click on to watch (which is just annoying and interrupts the flow. I also hate to watch with the sound on and have missed alarms several times because of falling asleep midway through a Tasty vid and being able to re-adjust the volume after leaving the app as I normally have to do) is not worth the hassle anymore.
Ad crazy + too biased 1/5
I used to love buzzfeed, and now it feels like it’s primarily click-bait, and every 4 “articles” it’s an ad. The app runs fairly slow, probably because of the ads. Also much of it is trash, not interesting and very uneducated positioning. Disappointed in it.
New layout 1/5
The new tile layout is absolute trash. Too busy and confusing. Looks like a cheap advertising blast
Nothing but ads now! 1/5
Buzzfeed is essentially one giant ad for Amazon. It’s pretty pathetic actually because they try to present them as articles or specially curated lists. People aren’t that stupid! If you’re looking for articles about the Kardashians or for garbage to buy on Amazon, this app is for you. If you’re not into those things there’s really no point to it.
By dive champ
I enjoy all the quizzes on buzzfeed I don’t read the article but I bet a lout of people do the only thing is the quiz aren’t always accurate and I think that you should work on that and one more thing I don’t always want to read all the questions and I enjoy the pictures and I think there should be more of those over all I enjoy buzzfeed
It won’t let me sign in. 3/5
So I like to go on this app if I’m not in the mood for instagram and I can find some pretty cool articles/quizzes. Usually I’ll find one that’ll I really like and I try to save it but then OH WAIT I have been logged out for the millionth time which is very annoying. Now when I try to sign in I reset my Facebook account password something weird happened with that so I tried signing up with my email and I put in my password(that I just made) and it keeps saying incorrect info or invalid password and I’m like 😑really so now if I want to save the post I have to send it to my self which is annoying cause I could of just hit the bookmark button but no! So if you could fix both of those things it would be greatly appreciated.
Signing in/creating account 3/5
Buzzfeed SERIOUSLY needs to work on fixing their app when it comes to logging in/creating an account. It always pops up with an error message or failed message. I re-created almost 5 accounts to just have one because I couldn’t log into my original one.
Bookmarks Do Not Save and App Constantly Logs You Out 2/5
The pieces that you bookmark on this app do not save, so you cannot go back and revisit them. The app constantly logs you out. There are major glitches in the comments sections of every piece.
Update: Freezes even more now!!!!
This version is constantly freezing! Can’t make it through an article or quiz without it freezing.
News tab was replaced w/ a shopping tab 1/5
Umm why did my ‘news’ tab get sneakily replaced by a ‘shopping’ tab? I’d rather be up to date on current events, than see the same freaking charcoal toothpaste ad 100x. Change it back, you greedy greedsters! I’ve never bought one thing from Buzzfeed and this is not going to convince me to.
News??? Update is awful... 1/5
Why was the news tab taken away? Now it’s just “home” and all of the dumb crap is mixed in with news without rhyme or reason. Sometimes I want news. Sometimes I just want to know which Muppet Baby I am - I don’t want to sift through everything.
