BuzzFeed Losing Some Facebook Buzz?

NewsWhipApril2014650April was not kind to BuzzFeed, as the content aggregator saw its total number of Facebook interactions (likes, comments, and shares) slip to just over 39 million from nearly 47.5 million in March, and it accounted for just five of April’s 20 biggest Facebook stories after logging 12 in the previous month, but BuzzFeed still topped publishers in terms of shares for April, according to social media news aggregator NewsWhip.

NewsWhip noted in a blog post that The New York Times and The Guardian re-entered its list of top 10 publishers in terms of engagement, and Upworthy, CNN, and Mail Online dropped off the list.

ABC News had a strong April, according to NewsWhip, seeing interactions nearly double from just under 10 million in March to 18.7 million.

The top 10 publishers in terms of shares for April were:

  1. BuzzFeed
  2. The Huffington Post
  3. ABC News
  4. Fox News Channel
  5. IJR
  6. NBC
  7. The Guardian
  8. The New York Times
  9. Upworthy
  10. CNN
