Entertainment and news website BuzzFeed has fallen behind projected revenue growth. The New York-based company's revenue in 2017 is expected to generate $280 million in revenue, which is $70 million short of BuzzFeed's $350 million target.

That's according to a new Cooley report on the third quarter. There was a 151 percent increase in aggregate dollars raised in the third quarter of 2017, compared to Q3 2016. Cooley looked at 210 deals representing more than $5.3 billion of invested capital. Also, a small number of "very large, later stage deals" drove the average median pre-money valuation for series D transactions to $750 million in Q3. That's a level not seen in over eight years.

The company recently raised $38 million as part of a series F round. Today, it added another $98 million on top of that, allowing the company to bolster its presence in other markets, including the U.S. The funding round comes on the heels of Deliveroo's purchase of New York-based Maple. Participants in this latest round include T. Rowe Price Associates and Fidelity Management & Research Co.
@BirchandMaple True. But he was also abusing alcohol at the time, went to rehab, gave millions to charities and is now trying to live a healthy life again. But, hey, lets continue to hate on social media a decade later. That's healthy.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
