    any active facebook users noticing the new type of spam click baits, its supposed to be a GIF, lol, but it redirects you to a link, and i though i'll never fall for this kind of stuff, but the GIF baits are real.
    this just gives immunity to users to not click any link in the 1st place, even if the title sounds important...

    I agree with you. Such practices basically EDUCATE users not to click on anything.

    believe, i wish it was this kind of shit, but this like advanced stuff, really put a goddam realistic GIF that has a photo that could incredibily
    attract the person (except the usual stuff of boobs & nudity...), he expects to see a GIF, and bam, he is fuckin redirected to a link where it is full of shitty ads, goddam easy money seekers are destroying everything.

    That ViralNova/Upworthy style of headline writing works NOW........

    But what if EVERYONE and his dog starts using it?

    Well, with tools like headlinr that's going to happen sooner rather than later...

    Eventually such headlines will have the pulling power of typical LIST HEADLINES. Lists were all the rage 5 years ago.

    Now people are IMMUNE to lists... even CRACKED.COM's awesome list headlines are looking generic.

    Oh gosh. I didn't notice that! And haven't experienced yet. Good grief. Thank you that such clickbait traps exist, and I'm a very active Facebook user who has a love and hate relationship with GIFs.

    Instead of wasting everyone's data and make autoplaying videos, why not make autoplaying gifs? Problem solved.
