The next season should begin in the Spring 2012.
That's right, Spring 2012 !
Assuming of course that the show isn't cancelled in the meantime.
I'm putting this in a prominent place because nothing on the Sister Wives website ( the fundamental fitness one, the Brown family website STILL has a 'Coming Soon' notice up), Twitter or Facebook fan pages says when the season starts. Why are they keeping their fans in the dark?
You know, with all the hype about social media and how important it is, am I the only one who finds it amusing that the Browns are still muddling around not really using Twitter and Facebook to round up some more folks to partake of that expensive MLM food supplements they are trying to sell?
Take a look at the Dargers. They have their ONE public Twitter account, which they basically use to direct their fans to their up and running website. They not only hawk their book, but provide weekly commentaries on their lives as polygamists, with plenty of cheesy, outrageously HUGE photos of the wives -usually hugging a kid or two, or a sister wife or husband or all four of the adults group hugging each other in matching outfits.
And then you have the Browns.
The Brown YouTube channel's plug was pulled months ago. The Fundamental Fitness website very simply points you to either the wives (and now Kody's) Twitter accounts, or the 'Like' fanpage on Facebook. Oh yeah, and to their trainer/business partner's Facebook page. It contains no other content.
I still don't understand the need to have 2 different 'official' fanpages run by the same group of family friends on Facebook. It's almost like how I would imagine Fundamentalist Mormon heaven to be setup. In lower heaven (the Like fanpage) you have all the riffraff who don't quite 'qualify' for the upper heaven - the 'friend' fanpage.
I recently went to the Like page. There were twelve (12) comments between 1/21/12 and and 12 noon 1/30/12.
- 2 comments wanted to know when the next season starts - so far unanswered
- 8 comments say how much they LOVE the show and family
- 1 comment asked a question about marriage vows - it also goes unanswered
- 1 comment called Kody a douchebag
Then there's the Friend fanpage. This is the one where you actually have to be 'vetted' as a Friend before you can see the content. Now this information is from Antoinette
On 1/28/12 Robyn commented that her four "kiddos" have been sick with the flu, and she can't wait til everyone is better. And on 1/26/12, Janelle wrote that Maddie has her learner's permit. These are the exact same comments made on their Twitter accounts.
The number of Friends are steadily dropping each week. As of 1/30/12, it's at 1426. There seems to be some lady with named Carol who has taken over as the official greeter now. That's fine, the Admins are too busy approving that backlog of 1000 friend requests and hunting for that mole! They need the help!
Commenters with questions are more likely to be answered by an admin on the Friend page than the Like page, and Janelle answered a question on 1/26/12. It's funny to see how many questions still go unanswered, but the admins ALWAYS have the time to write a response to a comment made by a Sister Wife. Must be in their admin volunteer contract (You WILL respond immediately and positively to a Sister Wife's comment, no matter how banal.)
Thanks Antoinette! Now you better get back undercover before those malicious (but very busy) admins accidently step on you!
OK, what's our Mother of the Year 2011 Robyn been up to?
Yeah, Antoinette told us. So, what's been happening with
C'mon, Robyn! You know you were named a TOP RECRUITER - VOLUME and TOP RECRUITER - SIGNUPS, so while you were retweeting I hope you didn't get hurt patting yourself on the back!
And while Robyn works on recruiting, Meri and Janelle went shopping!
Ummm....Thanks for that FYI, Janelle...
So what's been up with Kody?
Uh... Meri? Can you tell us what Kody is trying to say? Help us out, please!
And how's the family business coming along?
What kind of outfit is this? Didn't I read somewhere this was a multi-billion dollar company but they cram THIRTY (30) bodies into somebody's home? Actually, they could have gotten a lot more people crammed in if they didn't have such humongous chairs. No folding card table chairs for these folks. I guess no one is rich enough to have a mansion yet. Or maybe the rich know better than to get involved with this organization?
Well, that's all for now. When does Spring start?. And remember...
I scour the internet, so you don't have to !
