Martin : What makes clickbait, clickbait ?
Roger : Why isn’t that obvious, it’s the tiles that “baits” users into clicking them ?
Martin : Well, yeah sure. But what makes clickbait special ?
Roger : Isn’t that what I just said, it’s the the clickbaity titles that sets it apart.
Martin : Isn’t there more to it than that though ?
Roger : What more is there to it ? clickbait is clickbait, I don’t understand what you’re on about ?
Martin : Do you think clickbait is good ?
Roger : Clickbait is horrible, it has ruined the internet. Maybe, unless you’re a publisher who’ll get more traffic and ad revenue.
Martin : Roger, do think clickbait has negative connotations attached to it.
Roger : Yes.
Martin : Do you think that’ll go away if they delivered on the promise.
Roger : What do you mean ?
Martin : I mean if, I mean if they, I mean if they deliver on the promise of clickbait, will that solve the problem.
Roger : What are you yapping on about ? I have to go catch the bus, get to the point, will you ?
Martin : You know if, if you click the link and are satisfied with the result does that still count as clickbait ?
Roger : The title will still be clickbaity but the article won’t be, if that makes any sense. Martin I have to go now.
Martin : Hey, Shirley, What makes clickbait, clickbait ?
