Clickbait cliche: ‘You won’t believe what she looks like now’
I’m taking a break from my usual coverage of lying clickbait to explore some of the clickbait cliches employed by content promotion services like Taboola.
One of the most popular types of articles these services like to promote are then-and-now photos of celebrities and public figures (usually beautiful women).
What follows are just a few of the many instances I’ve seen lately.
They include Elisabeth Shue, Mia Sara, Raquel Welch, Angie Harmon, Susan Dey (photo at top), Daryl Hannah, Nancy Kerrigan, Samantha Fox and Jaclyn Smith.
