#Idea – 3 Ways to Approach Clickbait Headlines / 04.12.20

  1. I notice that you’re using a clickbait headline and I’m going to try and disincentivise you from doing dishonest things by not clicking it.
  2. I’m not going to click to find out what ‘this one thing’ or ‘this weird thing’ (etc.) is – you should have told me in the (…fucking) headline.
  3. By now I don’t believe a thing you’re saying, and so I’m not going to waste my time by clicking your headline.
