As more is consumed on mobile devices and within apps, media organizations are faced with a question of how to compete with the original content on Vine, Instagram, Tumblr, YouTube, and other social networks. BuzzFeed has created an entire team to create original content for these networks, while others have tried aggregation, and entirely new media organizations have sprung up to answer these questions.

This session will delve into real-life examples of what BuzzFeed is doing now on these platforms and what they have planned for 2015.
