Doing something to improve Facebook rather than make it worse?
Surely some sort of mistake!
1. Facebook has declared war on "click-baiting headlines", slamming them as "spammy". 2. The social network has noticed that lazy, poorly written headlines that lure in readers with an ultimately unfilled promise are almost universally hated 3. BuzzFeed and Upworthy-style 'you won't believe this' garbage is drowning out …
Surely some sort of mistake!
There are a hell of a lot of other sites/advertisers that really need to start applying the same thing. Professional Click Baiters need to be publically castrated with ten different sharp things...
I'd settle for 5 different blunt things...
preferably rusty ones.
Will we also get a reprieve on the situation here with the obnoxiously (mis)named articles and "Every! Article! About Yahoo!"?
Hell! No! You! Leave! Our! Yahoo! Headlines! Alone!
You forgot to tilt the exclamation point.

CAN ANYBODY explain to me WHY EVERYBODY is BEHAVING LIKE TEENAGERS that have NOT A CHANCE IN HELL to even get their A-LEVEL EXAMS.
Except the Russians, the Chinese and, well, ISIS.
Because the teenagers have decided that a career in "idiocy" is probably more exciting than a boring humbdrum job in an office.
Sometimes I wonder if they are right !

This being t'internet and all that, try looking at comments about teenagers through the centuries -- they don't change.
The Greeks, Romans etc.etc. all have the same moans about teenagers.
Fortunatley, this doesn't look like it's going to stop - Teenagers will carry on being teenagers and really pissing off Groan Up's for centuries to come.
I *know* they're right.
Upvote this comment and see why how Sylvester Stallone survived the car crash that never happened
.. Facebook? Feckbook?
Pay attention to me! Pay attention to me! Pay attention to me! Pay attention to me!
That's pretty much everything that comes out of crackbook. "Cleaning it up" isn't going to leave much.
You don't have a Twtter account?
Even LinkedIn is now posing as an alternative.
Can you tell me the 'next big thing' so I can get my standardised moans in first? Ta.
Dont have a Facebook account.
Dont have a Twitter account
Dont have a Linkdin account
Dont have a Reddit account
Use NoScript to block Facebook, Twitter, Linkdin, Reddit and Google (amongst others)
Unblock Google when it is needed to make a page work.
It works for me; but then I get enough inane drivel directed at me by the women I have to work with, and I havent found a way to block them yet.
(Soaps, soaps, Orlando Bloom, soaps, make-up, soaps, babies, Christian Bale, soaps.....)
Stop spying on my life !
Except for the remark on women, I agree with the rest of your post.
I understand where you're coming from, though.
OMG.. Point #6 in this article blew my mind!!!
That aside, FB perhaps a bit unhappy that other shitty-ad-networks are stealing a slot of their revenue?
Do they have a word for Facebook clickbait?
Well, I think Zuck calls it "revenue".
I got rid of my FaceBook and LinkedIn accounts.
...now if they could just do something about those boring-assed text-in-graphic "quote memes" and fotos of people holding up little signs written on notebook paper.
