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.

Geek Goddess to Grace the Cover of Playboy

I haven't purchased a magazine that required showing identification for about a decade, but thats all about to change. On this past Friday's episode of the G4 network's Attack of the Show!, co-host Olivia Munn announced that she would be gracing an upcoming cover of Playboy magazine. The announcement preceded a behind the scenes look at the photoshoot, featuring Munn in a series of different bikinis, poses, and between shot hilarity.

G4 has posted a video of the segment on their site, which I have embedded below for your viewing pleasure.

Munn co-hosts the live show with Kevin Pereira Monday through Friday of each week. The show is known for its popular internet and technology related segments such as Around the Net, a daily count down of interesting online videos; The Feed, a segment featuring interesting news from pop culture; The Loop, an interview segment similar to those found on traditional news programs; Gadget Pr0n, a technology review segment; and many others. If you consider yourself a part of the internet generation and you aren't already a viewer, I highly suggest you check the show out.
