It's launched, finally!
make people turn off clickbait stuff sooner?
probably not, as the onion doesn't seem to have made the actual media any less fucking idiotic
no, I don't think it will have any effect on the internet.
and it's not that funny really anway.
the Onion is good. This will probably be good.
But just like the Onion they need to not do videos.
is well funny.
I guarantee at least one of these is already doing the rounds on facebook by people not realising it's satire, possibly having been re-posted to an actual clickbait site
i think clickbait will die out, or at least evolve, as everyone tires of it, regardless of clickhole
i think if people are sharing clickhole without realising it's a joke, they'll probably at some point realise and then have a long hard look at themselves
but not that great.
And kind of ironic since sister site (the otherwise excellent) AVClub is a total click-bait whore these days anyway.
they probably launched this because their non clickbait site wasn't getting enough clicks.
I got a notification this morning telling me half my twitter friends had followed them.
by the people who make The Onion

This I do know x
but I guess it has to appear semi-legit to fool the average idiot.
didn't even raise a smile and you'd think it'd be easy to make fun of stuff like Friends episode titles.
i like The Onion/ AV so i'm all for it it as an idea but yeah it just isn't funny enough so it kinda falls flat on it's arse.
Buzzfeed's alright really anyway.
