HistoryEdit

The site began its publishing in 2008 under the name Vancity Buzz and was founded by Manny Bahia, Karm Sumal and Farhan Mohamed. The name was changed to Daily Hive in 2016 when the company expanded nationally over Canada,[3][4][5] it also coincided with Canada's trademark approval for BuzzFeed.[6] In 2016 the company had also grown to become the largest online-only publication in western Canada.[7][8] In November 2017 Daily Hive deleted many of their posts on their official Instagram account as a form of viral marketing, inspired by Taylor Swift's similar publicity stunt earlier in the year. They then posted images of the word "Nude". This stunt caused growth in their social media presence and gained them more followers than before.[9] That same month Vancouver Magazine ranked Bahia, Sumal and Mohamed together as among the 50 most powerful people in Vancouver, stating that Daily Hive was an influence on many Millennials.[10] [11][12]
