including comments -- a vital part of the interactive new media experience -- which one of these content farms is WORSE. inspired by the profound, mysterious despair i felt when perusing a buzzfeed list of commercial products marketed to the youth in the 90s, all of which i owned, i think, or wanted to own. our memories are not our own.

in the comments of the aforementioned list of 90s toys one person said -- unironically -- that our era will never live up to the 90s. this based on street sharks, hit clips, and orange nickelodeon video cassettes.

Is there anything that can actually be done to kill the Buzzfeeds and HuffPos?

uhh lol

I started making BF quizzes in 2017, in HS. That was my initial bio after I got my first quiz promoted. I was happy and couldn’t believe my quiz was good enough for BF to promote it. I know it’s not gonna happen, i just thought it was funny & i haven’t really thought of it since https://t.co/pCPqGb5pbu

mh, Tuesday, 29 January 2019 01:50 (ten months ago) link

isn't that an ilxor?

So how much of their quiz revenue is reliant on this one unpaid user not stopping?

jmm, Tuesday, 29 January 2019 02:09 (ten months ago) link

this is interesting work

Trϵϵship, Tuesday, 29 January 2019 02:11 (ten months ago) link

also--i know it's a moot point now--but why wouldn't they higher this woman who gets them a whole ton of traffic

Trϵϵship, Tuesday, 29 January 2019 02:16 (ten months ago) link

*hire

Trϵϵship, Tuesday, 29 January 2019 02:16 (ten months ago) link

because they can get the content without paying a cent

mh, Tuesday, 29 January 2019 03:13 (ten months ago) link

ah

Trϵϵship, Tuesday, 29 January 2019 03:15 (ten months ago) link

yeah that makes sense.

i don't know what i'd do if these ilx paychecks stopped.

Trϵϵship, Tuesday, 29 January 2019 03:16 (ten months ago) link

I must be sending to the wrong Venmo address, mea culpa

mh, Tuesday, 29 January 2019 03:32 (ten months ago) link

Oh good, Twitter seems to be persuading her to leverage her traffic and ask for payment.

Between April 2017 and December 2018, Rachel drove a conservative estimate of $3.8m in revenue for BuzzFeed (or 1% of their entire 2018 revenue). For free. https://t.co/H5U0xhnDPZ
