Viral Content Widget from BuzzFeed

January 8th, 2010


BuzzFeed.com tracks everything thats currently HOT on the Internet and everything that’s about to become HOT!

They have a customizable JavaScript widget (seen below) that can be configured to show a number of the latest topics. Custom colors and sizes with image size choices as well.
WordPress Plugin and PHP/PERL scripts are also available.

There’s even a static image badge if you want to promote BuzzFeed. (hmmm…doesn’t static mean non-changing? This image changes.)

BuzzFeed Tracks the Web’s Obsessions in Real Time.

We feature the kind of things you’d want to pass along to your friends: an outrageous video that’s about to go viral, an obscure subculture breaking into the mainstream, a juicy bit of gossip that everyone at the office will be talking about tomorrow, or an ordinary guy having his glorious 15-minutes of fame. And when you read BuzzFeed, you’ll always know the movies, music, and products that are on the rise and worth your time.

…and BuzzFeed wouldn’t forget all of those that don’t have websites to paste widgets into. So they have created a mountain of options for those of us that simply don’t want the hassle of maintaining a website.

# Apple Dashboard
# Yahoo Desktop
# NetVibes
# iGoogle
# PageFlakes

Whats curiously missing is a BuzzFeed app for the iPhone. You can always point your mobile browser to http://m.buzzfeed.com/ but I’, sure its just not as good as an actual BuzzFeed app could be.

Four months ago, Pageflakes, the independent StartPage startup that trailed against Netvibes was acquired by Media Company LiveUniverse , this brought me to the conclusion that we should see a Media Integrated Startpage pageflakes revamp coming from LiveUniverse. this has not happened yet. but the recent resignation of Dan Cohen, previous owner and CEO of pageflakes could indicate that the integration of pageflakes to LiveUniverse is now complete and pageflakes news should follow soon enough. lets hope for that.
