Riddle makes it easy to create viral lists, polls and ‘commenticles’ from anything on the Web

by in Apps

You probably know all about Buzzfeed’s listicle posts by now, so if you’ve always wanted to create your own viral content in Buzzfeed style, Riddle, a new social tool may help.

The premise is simple: you can create a list post, poll, quiz or “commenticle” quickly and easily, then embed it anywhere.

For example, here at The Next Web, we’ve been debating what to call the vegetable below. If we wanted to let you, the readers, vote on that, we can use Riddle to quickly throw together a poll or slideshow about them.

The same goes if you wanted to quickly comment on an article you saw (like this one) without creating a whole new blog post or something as short as a tweet.

Each Riddle post only takes a few seconds to throw together and has a unique URL so you can share it directly to social media.
