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.

Blindness: Because Your Eyes Are Closed

Let me start by saying that Blindness was shot beautifully and with inspiration. The cinematography clearly saught to bring the feelings of confusion and disorientation that come with blindness. The social implications of the story are clear. They show you a vision of what would happen when the world falls into chaos and anarchy. Clearly this writer doesn't hold out much hope for the Good in people. This point was well made and poignant.

But, that being said, there wasn't much more to it. There wasn't much of a tangible story and following the characters sometimes became dull and uninterestimg. This clearly wasn't a movie made to win any awards or gather a huge following. This was a movie for thinkers. A book on phylosophy will never win a great award though it be read by the greatest minds. So this movie will inspire the thinkers and ignore general audiences.

So I guess it was pretty good. But don't go knowing that you will love it. Go with your thinking cap on and an endurance to longevity.
