Joe Veix says BuzzFeed "posted essentially the same article" he did without crediting him prominently enough.
His Oct. 2 story was about people tweeting photos of themselves falling down stairs. Ryan Broderick wrote a story published the same day called "Teenagers Are Obsessed With Tweeting Photos Of Each Other Falling Down The Stairs" that linked to Veix's story, but not obviously enough, he argues: "Most bloggers have come to an unspoken agreement that you generally cite your sources in the first paragraph with an obvious link, and/or at the bottom of the article (i.e., “via ‘site name’”). BuzzFeed did neither."
BuzzFeed's story received more than 100,000 views, and Veix says his original "received 115 clicks back." (more...)
