Visuals are top priority when creating Playbuzz items, and we offer several ways for you to add images to your content. You can use the Getty Images integration and search the world's biggest image database, search for images online, or upload your own material. To learn more about the process, click here.

*Please note that you can incorporate files from Getty Images for editorial purposes only, and subject to Getty’s limitations, as mentioned in our Terms of Use. With respect to any content that you upload from the web or from your own images, please make sure that you have all necessary licenses in place and that such content does not infringe or misappropriate any 3rd party rights, as mentioned in our Terms of Use.

Your items can be edited and updated by you at any time. Simply go to the items list on your profile and click the chosen item’s “Edit” button. After saving your changes, the item will be automatically updated wherever it is embedded.

From your profile page, find the item you'd like to delete and choose “delete” from the drop-down menu. Your item will be deleted from your profile, and anywhere else it is embedded.

TIP: You might want to consider setting your item's visibility to "only me" instead of deleting it, in case you change your mind in the future.


In the right-hand column of the Create interface, you can select which language you want your item to appear in. 

Selecting a language has zero impact on the actual content you publish – it doesn’t mean that the text will be automatically translated into your selected language. Rather, this setting controls the language environment in which your flip cards will appear.

You can translate existing items by hovering on the characters icon and clicking “Help translate this item,” located above the ‘“Embed” button at the top of the page. Learn more about the process here.

Please note that after publishing a translated item, credit will be given to the author of the original piece. 

When creating an item on Playbuzz, selecting the “Public” option in the visibility map will permit everyone to see, play, and share your item. This option is highly recommended. "Direct Link Only" allows full access to everyone in the world, but only if the item's URL is shared with them. Selecting “Only Me” means the item is only available to you, but can still be embedded on any website. To learn more about the different privacy settings, click here

Playbuzz does not currently offer a white label solution. However, Playbuzz branding on embedded items is limited to the “Powered by Playbuzz” icon at the bottom of the embed.

Playbuzz does not collect personal data from users and does not support lead generation capabilities. However, you can include links to externally hosted forms in your items, and if you’re embedding an item on your own site, you can include a form next to the embed.

Our algorithm takes into account various parameters, such as: trending topics, the author’s overall success record, and more. Promoted items will be featured on the Playbuzz.com homepage, or the “Discover” section for the storytelling element you chose to use (e.g: Poll, Convo, Trivia etc.). We can’t make any promises, but let’s just say that the more you create - the better your chances are to be featured!

In the meantime, you can always share your item on Facebook and Twitter or embed it on your website or blog without waiting for us. To find your item, simply head to your profile page, which you can access by clicking on the avatar icon at the top of any page on Playbuzz.com.
