Stop Clickbait: A Chrome Extension to Block Clickbait Headlines

For those who dislike Buzzfeed-like headlines

Stop Clickbait is a Chrome extension, which identifies and notifies users of clickbait headlines. The users have the option to either block the content and in case of misclassified links, report it to help improve their classification.

It analyses a range of features in the headline, including sentence structure, and categorises the headline as “clickbait” or “non-clickbait.”

The extension currently only works on links on Facebook and Twitter.

  1. Superbly interesting ! Given that FB itself has started the fight against clickbait – isn’t this a bit too late to launch ?
