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. So, if you had every bot on Twitter following you, it would bring your follower count up to about 450 million. Sounds impressive, right? It does right up until you realize that bots aren't buying your products or telling any real people about you. You could make the case that the high number of foll…

Torchwood. Less is more?

Torchwood, the not so popular British television sci-fi/horror show is set for its third season to start on July 20th in the UK. Torchwood is a spin-off of BBC's longtime success story Doctor who, the longest running sci-fi show ever!

Anyways this season on Torchwood they have decided to cut the number of episodes from 13 in it's two previous seasons due to bad ratings last year to now only a five episode "mini-series" type event starting July 20th and running straight through the week with all five episodes. At the end of season two half the team from Torchwood got cut as well, bringing them from five members to three. As the show goes on budget crisis and such we see more of the borderline characters coming out to play a main role where as before they would sit on the side lines, something I am really looking forward to.

The new season is titled Children of Earth and the plot for it sounds like they got the key in the ignition this season and are ready to re-amp the series. This season is about a government who struck a deal in the 1960s with an alien race and the consequences of it - something that will affect all the children on Earth. As usual the show will be set in Cardiff with a little filming in London. Relationships between the group are set to develop more and the story as usual will try to push the bounds of what they do on television.

So be sure to find the episodes to this, sure to be great addition to the Doctor Who universe July 20th.


Until the Doctor returns!
May Harkness save us all.
