Agree with everything. At a time when anyone can freely claim almost anything, we do need more controls in how we market or sell our stories. Responsible headline-writing – Sensibility over sensationalism.

However, I have one wish. It would be great if there was some prompt that would tell us if the issue with the story was clickbait and not the quality of the writing. Because without that transparency, it’ll take a long time for us writers to develop a better judgment of what the platform deems as clickbait.

And it gets quite disheartening to feel as if the story was inadequate.
