Concrete clickbait: next time you share a spomenik photo, think about what it means
How have these places managed to transform from monuments to atrocity and resistance into concrete clickbait? The story told by Spomenik is that these strange structures must have just been dropped onto these rural areas, most likely by the Big Man, the dictator, Tito himself. According to Gal Kirn, who has written several articles on “partisan art” and whose book Partisan Ruptures was recently published in Slovenia, the opposite is true. “For these, let's call them modernist monuments, you would be surprised to see that the financing many times came as a combination of republican (Yugoslavia was heavily decentralised into its six constituent Republics) and regional funds, and also self-managed funding, meaning also that enterprises and factories contributed — while much less was given from the federal-state level.” There were competitions and “some public calls which had juries — but the existence of these progressive sculptural objects tells us that more conventional representations-resolutions were not favoured.” That is, in many cases these “UFOs” were commissioned, funded and chosen locally.

Aggregation, Clickbait and Their Effect on Perceptions of Journalistic Credibility and Quality: Journalism Practice: Vol 0, No 0
Many journalists and industry observers lament that aggregating news underneath sensational headlines will erode credibility and turn off readers. While some scholarly work has studied journalists’ perspectives of this practice, little has been done to understand what audiences think of aggregation and clickbait. This study uses published original and aggregated news articles as stimuli in two online experiments to test readers’ perceptions of news aggregation and clickbait. Aggregation itself has little effect on perceptions of credibility and quality; instead, writing proficiency is more closely linked to these perceptions. Results also suggest clickbait headlines may lower perceptions of credibility and quality.

Disney says its more than $400 million Vice investment is now worthless - Vox
All of those companies have different stories and different particulars. The through-line is that a few years ago, all of them were confident that they were going to shoot up in value, because they knew how to reach young audiences by exploiting the big tech platforms — in particular, Facebook and Google.

How Men Became "Emotional Gold Diggers" — Men Have No Friends and Women Bear the Burden
Wow. I want to say "What horseshit!", but I suppose I should just say an incredibly one-sided and warped view of things. It does try to clarify "American Relationships", but goes on to pull in "British Studies" (without any context). I suppose actually by the end the article is going in the right direction it just does so in an incredibly clickbaity and incendiary way.

There are a few reasons why a partner (male or female) may lack friends:

- Controlling partner (which can actually be a women! The fucking horrors! In a woman & woman relationship or a woman and man relationship)
- Living "remotely" (in which case often both partners are screwed and rely on each other for friendship. The horrors! Imagine a couple supporting each other!)
- No fucking time. Be it too much paid work or looking after kids, animals, the house and outside, etc. But (the fucking horror!) at least you have each other
- No money for either of you to travel, etc to see friends
- Ill health of a partner, the other one is a carer (again: The horrors! Imagine a couple supporting each other)
- And so on.
