No I don’t but some of the channels I subscribed to do and it’s down right annoying. I found if it’s done too much I don’t click on their stuff as much. I would rather not do it. Or if I have it’s unintentional

I tried out a very sensationalized topic/thumbnail once. Did not go over very well. It wasn't clickbait, but the audience saw right through it. Just didn't work for me.

Few years ago people started clickbaiting allot of people just to get views and attention. e.g. giveaways
Clickbaiting on my YouTube channel would make me not be an expert in my field as I talk about lifeissues and I need people to feel they can trust me on any discussion I bring. For giveaways, I have other social media account linked to my YouTube (same name and affiliated) I do giveaways there. I have a news blog too so I also do giveaways there that is linked to my YouTube channel. Then again my audience are mostly African's so they need that giveaways to feel I actually care about social injustice happening. These are not done in my YouTube channel though all the accounts work together.

I have never used clickbait ever in my life, I honestly don't want to start using it now or ever in the future.
