On another forum Bonnie from ‘Organic Discourse’ discourse brought up a term I faintly remember hearing, that is ‘Click Bait’.
Tonight I was guilty of taking the ‘Click Bait’ hung out in front of me. And to be a sucker on this system is very silly. Being on the net via cell signal results in a very slow system. I was tied up over twenty minutes on a story that was NOTHING in the end.
Are you guilty of taking ‘Click Bait’?
On some of the stories below the News headlines are so obvious, they do not tempt me. Especially the ones with the bold type that says:
“Could you use an extra $6,254.00 a week?” (Nah, who needs it!)
“Pay off your home in one year, no matter what you owe!”
(Now that is a good one!)
“Miracle drug from South American Forests, Take it and it STOPS Aging!” (Must be a deadly poison! Death is the only thing that stops aging.)
“Wrinkled Old Woman (very words) loses her wrinkles in six days”. Gotta try it, Money back Guarantee.
Reminded me of the old farmer who had never seen an elevator before. In the lobby of a hotel he sees an old woman in the elevator and a few minutes later a young lady steps out the same doors. He says to his son, “Go get your mama!”
That is a lot like ‘Click Bait’, good term for the sucker ads on the internet, and it must work.
But with all that is there to click on, I am glad you clicked on The Shipslog, it ws great to have you.
Tonight I feel good.
