BadginationSeptember 2nd, 2019
Badgination is the tactic of exposing a controversial headline to a user to instil a view upon them. The headline is either descriptive enough for a user to conclude the headline shall be take as truth or is click bait. When landing on the click bait site, the user quickly abandons reading to completion due to bad user experience (poor site load time/viewing restrictions such as geographic or member-based/bad pagination).
Without the ability for the user to read how stupid the article is, the probability of them abandoning the site is heightened and this increases the liklihood that the user will accept the headline as truth is high.
Sites guilty of Badgination:
- Seeking Alpha guilty of poor pagination, weak arguments, and highly opinion-based
