A new Page
Make It So
Mark Cuban and George Takei, take heart! The Dallas Mavericks owner and former Star Trek star have been kicking up a fuss of late about the way the social media site filters posts from Facebook Pages, suggesting that Facebook prevents their posts from showing up in users’ New Feeds as a means to selling promoted posts.
What if you had such a staunch following on Facebook that posting a link resulted in so may clicks that the ISP thought you were staging a DDoS attack? That’s what happened to George Takei, who is best known for playing fan favorite Mr. Sulu in the Star Trek films and series.
Mr. Takei has over two million Facebook fans. An average post receives thousands of comments, likes and shares, numbers that would have most social marketers foaming at the mouth. He shares tons of memes, weird news articles and videos, and is apparently also fond of Sulu-themed LGBTQ merchandise, as that’s where he ran into trouble with one paranoid ISP.
