the horrors of clickbait

I detest clickbait. Honestly, who started it? I would like to have a long conversation with you about your relationship with the Devil.

And it's getting worse.

I see images of celebrities that are alive and well, the caption reads; SHOCKING SUICIDES!

Really? You aren't even trying to create content now. You just want your ad money.

The thing is we give these people a reason to do this. We keep clicking. The solution is to stop.

However, if you are like me and you have the self control of a rhesus monkey (macaque) on speed. There is a secondary suggestion/solution.

Once you find that awesome video or news you were actually interested in, take the time and repost either the original content or perhaps a NON clickbait version.

It will make everyone happier in the long run.

Thanks.
