A few months ago, there was a major purge of sorts on Facebook. Some pages saw a decrease in their number of 'Likes' by .1%. The drop off can perhaps be attributed to Facebook deleting many profiles that were either inactive or fake. Not only were the party-poopers kicked out, but Facebook slightly changed their algorithm, EdgeRank to make things more “user-friendly” as well. There were many theories floating around the web marketing world, claiming that Facebook was trying to wreak havoc on business pages by hiding posts and making it easier for fans to block updates.

Just wing it! That's the hip way to seem approachable and less robotic on screen, right? Wrong. Sure, sometimes improvising seems more natural; but notice how rare it is for major Hollywood motion pictures to entirely neglect the script writing phase of production.
