Buzzfeed founder, Jonah Peretti disrupts traditional notions of media to focus on how audiences seek, share and engage with news. Peretti has long been fascinated by the viral sharing and spreading of ideas. This curiosity drove him as one of the founders of the Huffington Post, and is the heart of BuzzFeed’s DNA.
In his Vivid Ideas Game-Changer talk, Peretti will discuss the growth of BuzzFeed from a small lab experimenting with sharing ideas to its position as a global news and entertainment cross-platform network read by millions. He’ll reveal insights gained regarding the intersection of technology and creativity, the importance of the human element in framing the news and his vision for the evolution of the media and creative endeavour in the social age at his first Australian appearance, exclusively at Vivid Sydney as a Vivid Ideas Game Changer on 28 May at City Recital Hall.
