I still remember where I was when the Vanity Fair cover was announced on social media and I followed Caitlyn Jenner’s new Twitter account. I remember which Starbucks location I sat in to read the article. And now I will always remember that time I met Caitlyn in-person.
As soon as I saw a transit ad for The Founder, I knew I had to see it and I was right. It was fantastic. The Founder, starring Michael Keaton, focuses on the early days of McDonald’s and explains how Ray Kroc transformed a burger shack in California into an international institution. This portrayal of Ray Kroc’s life deserves to be nominated for awards and win.
Ray met the brothers behind the original McDonald’s while selling mixers. He was impressed by their story and observed that their cooking process was like “choreographing a crazy burger ballet.” After learning about their speedy system for serving fast food, which they called a “symphony of efficiency,” he convinced them to open franchises under his leadership.

Conner4Real loves Snapchat. He loves updating his fans on his surreal lifestyle and acting like everything is ok, even though it isn’t.
Recognizing how social media allows stars to control how fans perceive their lives, it’s entertaining to watch a mockumentary about what could actually go on behind the scenes. In this case, the footage is about Conner (Andy Samberg), a singer whose time in the spotlight is going to end unless he repairs his relationship with his childhood buddies. In real life, Conner’s former Style Boyz band mates Owen (Jorma Taccone) and Lawrence (Akiva Schaffer) make up the rest of The Lonely Island and they also co-produced and directed Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.
As far as sequels are concerned, this is a good one. In Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, Mac Radner (Seth Rogen) and Teddy Sanders (Zac Efron) return to the big screen for another adventure involving young college students who are more concerned with partying than showing respect to their middle-aged neighbours.
This time around, it revolves around a sorority led by Shelby (Chloe Grace Moretz AKA Brooklyn Beckham’s girlfriend), a girl who insists that if fraternities can host parties, then sororities can too. Shelby’s new sorority complicates things for Mac and his pregnant wife Kelly whose house next door is in escrow. Things escalate very quickly and before you know it, Shelby and her friends rob Mac’s house, hack his phone and become his worst nightmare.
Reaching certain social media milestones, such as reaching a benchmark in your number of followers, can be very exciting for a social media manager. What’s more, you may be pleasantly surprised to discover how much your followers want to celebrate with you. That’s why it’s beneficial to plan ahead and prepare a mini content strategy that you will be ready to execute when you see those magical numbers.
I’m a bit of a screenshot-aholic and some of the photos I’ve collected are posts that my favourite brands published when they acquired lots of followers. Now I’d like to share some of my top picks with you and I hope they will inspire your social media marketing.
Once Canada’s Prime Minister acquired 2 million Facebook fans, his team produced a short video to describe their demographics. Every Facebook page admin has access to these kinds of insights, so it was easy to create, but the average person couldn’t see this information until the video was released and probably found it interesting. By listing the distant locations of where his fans live, he cemented his position as a global leader while expressing gratitude for their support. The video was so engaging that even TV personality Jillian Harris liked it!
