Definition of clickbait
: something (such as a headline) designed to make readers want to click on a hyperlink especially when the link leads to content of dubious value or interest
It is difficult to remember a time when you could scroll through the social media outlet of your choice and not be bombarded with: You'll never believe what happened when … This is the cutest thing ever … This the biggest mistake you can make … Take this quiz to see which character you are on … They are all classic clickbait models.

I’m aware of it now so I avoid clicking.

No, I have seen them but I know they are just ads or hackers trying to get info from you so I just ignore them.
Also I am boring so if I see Guess what happens Next? I ignore it because I couldn't care a jot what happens next!

Have done it in the past and suffered scam emails for a while after that. Have had links present themselves to me recently, but have managed to avoid them by deleting off the computer.

Many of the "games" are for gathering your information so check your security settings

On the occasion I have clicked on them for a laugh, I immediately go into Settings>Instant Games and remove them.

You’ve probably seen those headlines that read, “You won’t believe this…” or “This is what…” and much more. The sensational nature stimulates your emotions, and users end up clicking without a second thought.
