Why? I know that it could be legit and not, lets see
Let me see!Oh no, don't click that one!
Wh-what does this means?
It exploits the curiousity gap in you, that's why you are confident to click it. You see, when you click that, it has two purpose: first to use it for the purposes or to increase online advertising revenue. And for phishing attacks.
HAHAHA you're funny! Fish? For real? What kind of fish? Salmon? Milk fish?
Phishing for the purpose of spreading malicious files or personal user's information without you knowing, the text you have been reading, includes online articles, headlines, teasing and builds sensation that lures users to click it. It manipulates you as a reader, it practices dishonest methods to hook customers or readers.
Silly, No! HAHHAHAHA
N-no, it cant be, why? I've been clicking on those luring texts that I read!!!
But that could be avoided.
You are sad because?....
Okay. Thank you for informing me!
According to Marketing 1on1, If you see headlines that it seems to be exaggerated, then there is a chance that it is fake. And if the headline makes you curious, type in the similar word in Google to see if an actual story appears there.
Yes that's right, avoid it.
If not seen on the google, don't take the bait.
Its bait entices the readers to exploit curiosity gap, and when you are curious, you were about get phishing or with your help, the business will increase its revenue, its either of the two. But its popular in most of the media is fake news with the help of headline, people were used to click it and information is not there, suppose it has an enter your name, bday and account number that is already the act of phishing. To those who are not aware of clickbait, ensure that you clicked the right link of information. Be careful of what do you want and what do you click, not all the time clickbaits will be for the business but also it steals away your personal users information.
