Clickbait term for web content whose main goal is to entice users to click on a link to go to a certain webpage or video. Often times titles are sensationalized and lack much substance.

We All Share In The Responsibility "Those who repackage or share news content have a responsibility to not use deliberately or accidentally misinforming headlines, the world also needs to use and learn more basic news literacy skills if they wish for the population to remain informed instead of confused." 🌐 DailyTitan.com
