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?

I saw Tron. Didn't particularly care for it, but I could see its draw for the crowd it was released to. It was released a year before I was born, so I couldn't tell you any initial reactions, but I can see where it would have been the Avatar of its day. Amazing computer graphics (the first movie to fully utilize computer graphics to such a degree) with a merely ok story. A wild ride through the inner workings of a computer that made for dazzling eye-candy, but low story quality.

Tron Legacy, on the other hand... I am so excited for this movie. Partly because of the updated graphics, partly because of the potential the story actually has, but mostly for the underground hype machine they're using for the marketing. Oh, also, I <3 Jeff Bridges. What do you think about Tron Legacy?
