Junkee Media’s pop culture website Junkee.com has been landed two stories in the Top 10 Most Shared Stories in Australian media in 2015, according to the Share Wars website.
Proving that cats are indeed the unofficial mascot of the Internet, “Today Is Also ‘St Gertrude’s Day'; Celebrate The Patron Saint Of Cats” scored #2 most-shared article of 2015 in Australia boasting 263842 shares while “Someone Went And Photoshopped Giant Cats Into ‘Jurassic Park’ Because The Internet” came in at #8. Junkee.com was the only independent publisher to be featured amongst traditional media giants like Fairfax and News Corp Australia.
Publisher Tim Duggan said Junkee’s success at generating addictively shareable articles can be pinpointed to its focus on content that cuts through the clutter by telling the stories that matter the most to young people (like cats!), and with a distinct tone of voice.
