Quoted from flashinstinct:
I'd have to tally it it up but just to give you an idea the last WWE post with the deli meat ticket dispenser "now serving" is at 910 views. And the last I look before that total was at about 7,000 something post view overall. I'm sure we are passed 8,000 views.
Shares are not significant since most people don't use the feature. Overall maybe 45 shares on roughly 20-30 posts. The post that have shares have more views by about 55%-75%. If people would share the post, views would be in the 10,000 mark per post. The difference between shares and likes are easy. If you share the post it gets put on your timeline, where as liking will just put a notification in the top right corner. That's why I have been sterssing that "share" is more important than "like"
I started posting stuff on twitter 2 weeks ago so it's too early to say. 2 followers, people don't seem to like twitter but I have just posting stuff here and there and not being as consistent as I should.
Not sure but I can guarantee than stern removed nearly 100% of the posts. Even if some where legitimate questions about code.
A big fat ZERO
You would have to ask Stern.
Well the thing we can officially say is that there are three things that are happening.
1) Stern can't delete the posts I make because they are on my page
2) When you search the terms Stern Pinball in facebook all are posts get crawled and featured.
3) Page likes are consistently growing.. mind you 228 is not that much but the more people join the more of a voice people have.
4) Another user is publishing an article on his blog soon so I believe we will get more traction.
The important thing here is not to put the cart before the horse. Slow and steady is the way to go. Besides we want the message to go to potential buyers that don't know what they are getting themselves into about code and risks of never getting the game you were promised / advertised.
Are there any other local, national offline &/or online press you could reach out too?
Maybe write-up a "manifesto" on the desire for product completion & support drawing in other analygous industries & products and examples of the customer-base influencing improvement?
With an informed story like that (or series of research/stories), many-many online content companies would pick it up and publish the articles.
Just have to avoid "negativity" and instead focus on items like:
state of market & products,
even the duality of the customer "controversy" between desire to support taking action for change, indifference, uninformed, and resistance to criticism by customers of Stern, (what does that spectrum look like and how have you derived metrics to plot customers along it, then speculate market size against that subset along the spectrum),
similar (other) markets/products, situations outcomes (positive, no change, negative: results),
such content would drive awareness and traffic to your fb account, twitter account, and increase measurable marketing results... of course in the end with the desire to effect change. Within the content, could also site very specific desires for change with existing products, products in development and customer buying habits as goals to achieve, + ...
