Facebook is once again adjusting the algorithm that powers News Feed. The changes are  aimed at reducing the amount of “clickbait” in users’ feeds.

According to facebook changes will begin to appear within couple of weeks.

Facebook is using two key factors to define clickbait :

(1) if the headline withholds information required to understand what the content of the article is; and (2) if the headline exaggerates the article to create misleading expectations for the reader

Links from pages that routinely post these types of headlines will be demoted in users’ News Feeds, Facebook said.
