BuzzFeed has 'so much to learn' from early media companies

BuzzFeed is set for international expansion with Berlin, Tokyo, Mumbai and Mexico City just some of the cities the social news and entertainment platform has its eye on.

“It will take luck, talent, and hard work, as well as a willingness to learn from the past and embrace the future, but BuzzFeed has a real shot to be one of the great, enduring companies of this new era.”
