Example of Curation

Buzzfeed’s news articles have many links throughout their articles, creating smooth curations along with hectic curations. The website is more entertainment based, so writers have to adapt to this form of delivering news.

Jane Lytvynenko’s article “Here Are The Hoaxes And Conspiracies Still Going Around About The Parkland Students” gives information about the negativity that the public has placed around these people. This includes fake Tweets and photoshopped images.

There are not only links in Lytvynenko’s article, but there are images from social media that correspond to these links. This makes it easier for the audience to follow along with stories without having to click away from their article.

The crossing between images and curation can effect the audience in a negative way. The audience might only pay attention to the massive images instead of reading the actual article that is tagged along with them.
