Dale Jeffries, a 36-year old man from Texas, logged on to Facebook for the fourth time at work on Tuesday. Each time his timeline was filled with articles with the same ridiculous headlines and cliffhangers.
“Man Tries to Hug Lion. What Happens Next Will Shock You…”
“This Woman Caught Her Boyfriend Cheating on Her. How She Responds is Legendary..”
Dale couldn’t take it. He remembers when people used to use social media to share interesting content that they created or came across, like news-breaking articles or thought provoking pieces or funny takes on current affairs. Now people were specifically creating content to throw on to social media with insane headlines just so they can get more clicks for their stupid video or 100-word article.
Every dumb cliffhanger headline distracted from any actual content on social media with even the slightest bit of purpose. No one was reading anything that had any actual thought put into it (like maybe a satire or something).
Dale felt like the only one who was noticing this. He prayed that he could find one article posted on his timeline that didn’t have a cliff hanger in it. He found one…
It was hopeless.
What Dale did next will
restore your faith in humanity, amaze you, totally shock you.
