Facebook has announced a new partnership with BuzzFeed which will involve the far-left outlet being paid a whopping $10 million by Meta to spam the newsfeeds of billions of people.
Meta, which owns WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook, reached out to BuzzFeed and agreed to pay $10 million to BuzzFeed to create content.

Here are a few more BuzzFeed headlines, to give you an idea of the type of content that might be coming soon to Meta properties. These are actual BuzzFeed articles:
If that is the type of creative content that BuzzFeed will create for Meta users, I’m gonna pass.
