Why Slow and Steady Wins the Race in Social Media

A lot of the times, new business pop up and their owners are so excited about this new venture that they think they need to see quick growth on social media. This mindset may lead them to make some rash decisions such as buying followers or spending too much on ads. And it may look impressive to investors to have gained over 1,000 followers in under a month, but savvy investors know there's more to it than that. And the day-to-day consumer probably won't even pay attention.

Let's get this out of the way right at the front: Do not buy followers. No one knows for sure, but it's estimated that about 15% of social media accounts are bots. That's 15% of about 3 billion.

The whole Mummy series of movies is, at its heart, an action series. The whole mummy concept is just an excuse to get Brendon Frasier to run around a lot and shoot lots of bullets. To be fair, he does that pretty well. But in each movie they sacrifice character development for action and lame attempts at comedy.

I'm gonna say this one is kind of a geek movie. Because there's magic and mummies and yeti. But in the long run, this is probably a movie that mostly the rest of the general public will enjoy more than the geeks.

So, since it's not fully a geek movie I won't do a full review of it. But suffice it to say, I'd recommend seeing it if you like seeing Brendon Frasier run around a lot and shoot a lot of bullets.
