BuzzFeed, Inc. is an American digital media company. Originally founded in 2006 by Jonah Peretti and John S. Johnson III to track viral content, it expanded into a source for viral content in its own right — the site became known for online quizzes, articles tapping into pop culture, and list-type articles ("listicles"). They have since expanded into their own video division, a short-lived podcasts division, and an investigative news division. The latter, BuzzFeed News, was active from 2011 to 2023.

The website produces daily content from staff writers and community contributors, and receives most of its traffic from social media shares.

BuzzFeed and similar websites also inspired the trope Shallow News Site Satire.
