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…

What does "Cracked the Story" mean?

So, uh...

Indiana Jones 5...

That's happening...

When interviewed for Transformers 2, Shia said that Steven Spielberg has "cracked the story" on Indiana Jones 5.

So... it's gonna end up even more cracked than Indiana Jones 4?  Is that what we're talking about?

"Hey, beautiful!  I made you a long-distance relationship kid!  I gotchu a web cam so we can chat 24-7."

I liked him better when he was nervous and nerdy.  Now he's nerdy and douche-baggy.  And I think it's Meghan Fox's fault.


  1. The next movie takes place on another planet... You see the world is decimated by a chain reaction of nuclear blasts, but good old Indy happened to hop into an old refrigerator just in time to get blasted into outer space! How sweet is that?

  2. Pretty sweet. Now he has to rediscover the archeology of an entirely different world. I assume Mutt has a space-cycle?

  3. Of course he does, he's a tough guy.

  4. Right now Spielberg is scrambling. "Holy crap! How did my script get leaked??" people are getting fired because of how accurate our predictions are.

  5. Lol, does that mean there are openings?
