San Francisco: Elon Musk-owned social media platform X has introduced many controversial changes. Now the ‘clickbait ads’ in X are becoming controversial. Clickbait ads are unique in that they cannot be blocked or reported even if the ads are annoying or annoying to the consumer. Allegations are growing that this will become a huge nuisance for consumers.
Tech website Mashable reports that unlabeled ads are already starting to appear in consumers’ feeds. That means X won’t reveal who has published these ads. The consumer is not even informed if they are advertisements. These ads cannot be liked or retweeted. Such ads show low quality content similar to spam ads. X mobile app has ads.
According to a Mashable report, consumers have been contacting them saying they’ve seen some ads in their For You feed that they’ve never seen before.
X is trying to earn income by any means. Ex-CEO Linda Yaccarino says the company will be profitable by 2024. Yaccarino says 90 percent of the top 100 ad providers have returned. Company X, which has introduced a new subscription plan, is also planning to bring X completely under subscription.
