Searching on Buzzfeed

Last updated: January 28, 2015 - 9:15pm EST

Sometimes you just want to know what Buzzfeed has on cats. Other times, a friend may have mentioned to you something they found on the site that you’d like to look at too. This is when the Buzzfeed search bar comes in handy.

To access the search bar, click the search icon (i.e. the magnifying glass) in the top right corner.

The magnifying glass will disappear and the search bar will appear. Click on it, type in “cats” (for example), and press the “Enter” key on your keyboard to search.

Your results will appear from most recent to least recent, and will consist of everything from quizzes to videos to articles. Unfortunately, there are no advanced search functions on BuzzFeed – so there is no way to search for only videos, or sort content from least recent to most recent.

Another quick way to search for something is to search by the reaction you want to have. You’ll notice at the top, across from the BuzzFeed logo, there are yellow circles with “LOL,” “omg,” “cute” and more.

Click one of them to see results that have been marked most often with that reaction by BuzzFeed’s users.

And those are some ways to find what you're looking for on BuzzFeed!
