What Greenpeace has learned from BuzzFeed

Greenpeace. The video Procter & Gamble don't want you to see.

‘The video Procter & Gamble don’t want you to see.’ That’s the title of the newest campaign page from Greenpeace. Which is a typical headline that BuzzFeed would use. Such a headline that will seduce you immediately.

Whether I like it or not doesn’t matter. It is just an observation.
