With the myriad of social networking sites nowadays, it’s hard to find a website that serves as a reliable news source while dishing out entertainment, and not just a place for users to post pictures. Just when you’d think all hope was lost, behold: BuzzFeed.

BuzzFeed is an Internet news and entertainment company that features a variety of categories on its website, such as politics, DIY, animals, and style. Better yet, their quizzes have been known as a great pastime, and have been taken by celebrities like Pitch Perfect 2’s Rebel Wilson and Ellen DeGeneres. Although there are thousands of reasons for you to go berserk over BuzzFeed, here are nine.
