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.

This is not unheard of since the Doctor Who franchise has done stories in the past featuring past generations of the Doctor, what's new is making this type of story into a movie. It represents a whole new direction for the franchise. One for which I am particularly excited.

The origin of this rumor is an unnamed source speaking for the Daily Express, and has not been confirmed either by BBC or David Tennant, so keep your hopes low for now. But don't be surprised if in the future it is announced as fact!

In fact... I'm off to the future right now to confirm.
