Vin Diesel Says that Facebook owes Him Billions

Vin Diesel is in cinemas right now with Fast and Furious 6. The famous actor is not just a box office hit, he is also a social media star. His Facebook page has over 40 million likes. Why? In a new interview on Entertainment Weekly Vin Diesel explains that he got into the game early and understood how it works.

Vin Diesel started his Facebook Page in early 2009. He got the pretty quickly the #1 page. The reason for it he says was that he directly talked to his fans. Quote: "And it was only because I said: “Hi, guys, I love you.”" He said that Facebook was even asking him to tell his secret and why he got so many fans. Quote: "What was unique was: I never let anyone do a post, I never let anyone post for me in the last four years. My audience knows me so well on the page that if my producing partner’s in the room when I post, they’ll know somebody was around me. That’s kind of cool, that’s how sophisticated they are. Facebook really owes me billions of dollars. But whatever. [Laughs]"

There you have it. Vin Diesel got social right already four years ago. Check out his Facebook fan page.

Chris Brown Tries His Hand at Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me,’ with New Lyrics: Listen

Source: Houston's Hot Hits

Sam Smith‘s gospel “Stay With Me” is so moving, it’s inspired a handful of artists to put their own spin on it — including Ed Sheeran, Florence and the Machine, and even Vin Diesel, to name a few. But while those artists have tried to improve on it, in their own ways, Chris Brown knows that the original is pretty flawless.

Iggy Azalea Goes from Waitress to Samurai in ‘Black Widow': Watch

Source: Houston's Hot Hits

How does one follow the No. 1 song in the country for many weeks and, arguably, 2014’s song of the summer? Diner fights about bacon and cheese sandwiches, obviously. At least, that’s how the music video for Iggy Azalea‘s “Black Widow” kicks off. Azalea, a diner waitress, is encountered by a seemingly important (or, at least that’s how he makes himself come off) man and his lady friend, Rita Ora. The dude orders a bacon and cheese sandwich with extra cheese for days, bu ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
