Conundrum of the day: BuzzFeed threw up a story about Mitt Romney called “Mitt Romney is Terrible for Traffic,” pointing out (at least on some sites) that Romney stories don’t get as many hits as Obama stories do — and proving it with a set of posts of their own. Perhaps that’s why his Tumblr page has gotten completely ignored?

Might also be an age thing. BuzzFeed—and tumblr—skews young. Obama supporters skew young. Romney supporters tend to be a bit older, and therefore aren’t clicking on BuzzFeed and tumblr all day. Like where all this is going, but think it’s important to keep in mind not all audiences are created equal.
