Listicle

blending noun
online articles that provide lists of facts, pictures, gifs, links, etc.
 
They are typically connected by some common thread and introduced by an interesting title such as “100 books to read before you die” or “27 times food was the best thing ever.” Readers are drawn in the list and end up reading the whole article anyway. A list is an easy, intuitive way to organize an article so that people will keep reading. Because listicles are quite separate from either lists or articles, they became a separate concept.
Etymology : Listicle is a blend of "list" and "article." The rise of listicles seems to coincide with the rise of Buzzfeed, Huffington Post, and other lesser-known competitors.
