Why is this here? It's just an ad for buzzfeed's affiliate page

Is this considered to be a product?

BRB, throwing up a page with a bunch of amazon affiliate links.

Pros:

None

Cons:

Everything about it

DiederikThere is no substitute for hard work.

Buzzfeed is pure garbage. Fast food for the mind. It makes your brain fat and dumb. This is just an affiliate link site presented in the insufferable, vapid way the world has sadly come to know over the years from Buzzfeed.

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

Everything

BuzzFeed quietly rolled out a Wirecutter competitor, curating and reviewing products across tech, beauty, home, and more. This isn't a surprise as they've been experimenting with content + commerce with their Product Labs' introduction of the Tasty One Top, Fondoodler, and even a garbage can. I'm tempted to talk about what we're planning in this space, but now's not the right time. πŸ˜‰

@rrhoover Guessing this is a US-only site? I get redirected to buzzfeed.com/shopping, which is basically just listicles with affiliate links in them. Suspect a lot of other people in the comments have experienced this as well.

@rossdcurrie strange! I'm in the U.S. and not seeing that redirect.

@rrhoover I imagine it's because of the affiliate links are only good for US visitors. I end up seeing this (from Australia): Which... is basically just standard buzzfeed listicles but with more click-to-buy links

The first immediate thing that feels is missing is any reason why those reviews should be trusted. Wirecutter does a great job of breaking down what their process was and who the reviewer was each time.

If you trust Buzzfeed to give you unbiased recommendations, I've got a dossier to sell you.
