One of the main problems was that Buzzfeed failed to caption their two images. This made me confused about who the people in the images were. For example, in the first image, there is a woman on the phone and she appears distressed. Who is she? Why is she distressed? Was a family or friend on the plane that crashed? Is she trying to find out if the person she is waiting at the airport is safe? If the reporter, Nidhi Subbaraman, would have supplied that I would have felt more of a connection to the woman. The second image there is a man wearing a suit in the midst of the rumble. Same questions: who is he, what is he doing?
The piece was also missing a very crucial hyperlink to an important source. I would have included a link to a video of the press conference by Ethiopian Airlines CEO Tewolde Genremariam. It was quickly found on Youtube, but it would have been more user-friendly if Buzzfeed hyperlinked to it instead.
