I was scrolling through my feeds today (as any normal social media manager would), when I couldn’t help but notice an article posted by a premiere EDM website (a site that normally reports recent news in the world of EDM). Sadly, what I saw was far from news in my eyes.
This particular website is known as EDM.com. They roll out multiple streams of content regularly, and are often known to influence artists and culture in dance music on a wide scale, but every now and then, you see these so-called “articles” which are really nothing but clickbait.

The public has already started to lend their thoughts on what they really think about this article. I hope EDM.com can recognize the type of crap that they have been putting out and do better and not just for clicks.
