I analyzed an article on BuzzFeed which is about air cabin crew being arrested because of bringing $21 million-worth drugs into Australia.
There is only one hyperlink in this article, which linked to an ABC News article that reported more details on the arresting. However, the BuzzFeed article was more like a summary of the ABC News one, rather than had its own viewpoint of the story.
In the article, it mentioned that police had seen a re-emergence of heroin use in Victoria. I expected a link here to give evidences of the actual number of heroin use and reports about fatal overdoses of heroin. I suggested using “re-emergence” and “fatal overdoses” as link phrases.
The image in this article lacked a caption to explain who the person was in the image. Although it cited that the image came from abc.net.au, it was just a screenshot of a video that Victoria Police saying the drug syndicate has been operating for over five years. It would be better if BuzzFeed linked to the original video, not a screenshot without caption that confused readers.
Overall, this article needed to improve the choice of images and links. Also, besides social media share buttons, there is no other user interaction on the website page. I would like to create a comment area under the article that let readers discuss the story.
