Top 3 of reasons these posts work :

  • They are expected to be short
  • They are expected to do some curation for you
  • They are expected to give you crowd wisdom

The last one is dangerous because it usually isn't crowd wisdom. Please keep thinking on your own! 😊

Fair points raised.

Unrelated (and my opinion): sure, lengthy articles are not for the faint at heart. I like to balance my posts; not too long, not too short. I think it is sad though that people don't have more than a minute to spare to read something that will augment their intellect. But alright, to each their own.

They are expected to give you crowd wisdom

Listicles are by no means wisdom. They tend to be opinionated in general. "BEST VSCode Extensions you need in order to find love" Yeah. Wisdom... If anything they are compilations of something. My 2 cents 🤷🏻‍♀️
