1. It’s safe to say that George Takei’s Facebook page is one of the most popular and well-known Facebook pages there is.
2. But Takei isn’t actually the one doing most of the updating and the mega-viral posts are mostly the work of this man:
3. According to Jim Romensko’s blog, Polito makes $10 a post to update Takei’s Facebook page.
“…even at $10 a joke it still feels like a validation to see so many people reacting to my humor. I have written jokes that got 10 likes per second for hours. The power of George is unbelievable. His fans are a viral army. He may not be a stockholder, but he owns Facebook.”
My possible good news this week is that a book I wrote a few years ago (and my agent gave up on) is #2 in “Hot New Releases” for kids’ sci-fi in the Kindle store. That sounds more exciting than it is, given the sales. But it’s something. I’m in the top 100 in two categories.”
