Within the past two years Buzzfeed has had a towering and impressive increase in the number of visitors. Most visitors do so on their mobile devices. With videos showing President Obama as a regular person, it’s no wonder why they have so many. http://www.buzzfeed.com/andrewgauthier/the-president-uses-a-selfie-stick#.gk1m9qLQw
