#ClickbaitThatWorksOnMe via Hashtag, You’re It!: @McMannofthePeop The Top Picks


We’ve all bored and have been scrolling thru Facebook when we come across a link that stops us right in our tracks. Maybe it’s “the 23 cutest puppies in the world” or “Take The Quiz To See Which “Friends” You Are: Joey, Monica, Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Or Chandler ” or “12 caribbean vacation destinations that cost under $100” or “Bigfoot finally found. You won’t BELIEVE what he has to say”. But you just gotta click on those links. That my dear friends is clickbait. Many journalism historians have likened Clickbait to the Yellow Journalism of the mid 1890’s newspaper war between Hearst and Pulitzer. Basically it’s just headlines that are meant to draw you in but fail to deliver. Whether being an out right lie, or just restates the headline itself, or just filling your computer with viruses, clickbait is the bane of our online lives. Buuuuuut, that being said clickbait DOES work! That’s why for this week’s “Hashtag, You’re It” I wanted to help out those devious little Facebook bots and make their job much easier with the hashtag #ClickbaitThatWorksOnMe. What really grabs your attention enough to follow a Facebook link down the rabbit hole of feed’s that are buzzing? So check out the top list below and don’t forget to join me every Tuesday at 11 am EDT for the next exciting episode of “Hashtag, You’re It”
