A negative impact only on that person? Are you kidding, I can't eat peanuts/tree nuts anywhere because of these people.

Hugely impacts my quality of life...

Haters gon hate? If people didn't read Vancity Buzz, then there would be no Vancity Buzz. As much as people bitch, they're still reading and that still results in profit. People bitch about Buzzfeed all the time too...Buzzfeed is a multi-million dollar operation.

Vancity Buzz traffic has already surpassed the websites for the Sun and Province I'm sure. Readership will probably pass actual newspaper readership too.

I don't write lists or whatever, though. I only write longform, in-depth restaurant articles with heavy image counts and although I might get a thousand or so shares if I write a great look at a ramen place, fact of the matter is...the clickbait brings in more revenue because people read it more.

Say what you want about Vancity Buzz but...whatever's on the site? It's what you wanted. The traffic doesn't lie.

You are just wrong, there are plenty of people that aren't reading it, aren't clicking the links, and don't get baited; So you really shouldn't lump everyone into this group you call "they". "they" certainly is not representative of the people posting in this thread.

It's just unfortunate that the "they" you are referring to represents half our countries population which is comprised of mostly idiots. Without this group of idiots you refer to as "they", VSB would cease to exist, but I guess someone needs to pander to this group of degenerates and dumbasses.

I wouldn't worry about it though, you feel free to continue being proud to be the one who writes articles that pander to neanderthals. Haters gon hate, amirite?

Spoiler!

And that is the problem. I'm convinced that for every logical person out there, you'll find 10 idiots. Give social media access to an idiot and you'll see the idiotic things with idiotic results.

I used the FBP extension in Chrome to clean up my FB dashboard. No more stupid trending wall or seeing people like / share VCB posts. All I see now is the main feed from people / groups I want to see info. from. It's great.

Custom background too

No problem. I get it. I'm just saying that rather than talk shit about VCB, blame the general public. VCB is just providing what the general public wants. I'm sure it's hard to find the need to "improve" when a list or a story about Middle Eastern men taking pictures get 60x the traffic of a "good" post. The numbers don't lie. VCB is just a reflection of Vancouver.

First, don't confuse click-throughs with people actually reading the articles.

Second, don't confuse click-throughs with an indication of "what people want to see"... sometimes it's just to see what kind of bizarre shit Aunt Gertrude is sharing now.

I bet the National Enquirer gets plenty of click-throughs AND actual reads... doesn't make it a legitimate news source.

People like our own CiC constantly accuse "the mainstream media" of stirring up controversy just to drive ad revenue... bizarro media like VCM, Buzzfeed, etc. has them beat in that department, hands down.

To be fair, a spell checker wouldn't have helped with that one. An efficient editor, on the other hand...

Just a wild guess, but I'm thinking that maybe a Vancouver developer is hoping to sell condos with no down payment....
