In a move that will have repercussions for a wide array of media companies, Facebook is changing its all-important algorithms to discourage what it calls "click-baiting headlines."

As a result, you'll probably see fewer stories on the Web that proclaim "You won't believe what happens in this video!" or promise that "This story will blow your mind."

These sorts of headlines have proliferated in the past couple of years because Internet publishers have found that they help boost page views and, consequently, revenues from advertising. But critics of the style -- and there are a lot of them -- say it's cheap and fundamentally unsatisfying to users.

Lol and how are they supposed to do that? I mean, they can't control how an user names their sites thumbnail properties.. or what, are they going to blacklist words as "INCREDIBLE-BELIEVE-BLOW-MIND". I don't really see it happening

Yeah I agree with Pachu on this one.. How on earth are they going to monitor that ?

I don't have any idea, im also skeptical about that one too.

With a site as big as Facebook this will be almost impossible to monitor and prevent all videos and links from slipping through with those kind of titles. I personally do not see this happening at all or if they do they will be fighting a losing battle and going round and round in circles trying to prevent it.

They need atleast 5% of total world population to work for them to monitor these things lol.

Facebook's first step should be to ban all BuzzFeed links. That site is clickbait central and a waste of everyone's time.
