He seems rather relunctant, lol. Looks like he had to for EPIX & Berlin Station. Poor guy.

More places for him not to reply back… (grinds teeth). Why bother?

I’m feeling a certain amount of exasperation myself and am trying to remind myself to reign in my distaste for this kind of thing. That said, I am guessing this is a move pushed on him by Berlin Station’s social media gurus …

I’ve been so thoroughly charmed by the way the SUPERNATURAL team handles the #SPNFamily that I’m feeling cockeyed optimism about this.

maybe he’ll get help.
Servetus said this on August 10, 2016 at 1:28 am | Reply
Maybe. I think he needs Misha Collins and William Shatter on his team.

At the very least.
I’ve had to restrain myself from tweeting “don’t read the comments”

Oh, the speculations that are flying through my head…

yeah …. talk about dropping a bomb
Servetus said this on August 10, 2016 at 2:00 am | Reply
Yep. Out of nowhere 2 new social media accounts. I haven’t investigated the instagram yet (though I followed it). I wonder if he’s going to be an eager deleter on the new platforms as well? =)
jholland said this on August 10, 2016 at 2:08 am | Reply
I hope not. But I suspect he will be on FB. Way too drama-attractive (if he thought Twitter was bad).
Servetus said this on August 10, 2016 at 2:10 am | Reply
Oh, yes. Recipe for all kinds of drama. The mind boggles.

Maybe he should consult Jed Brophy for some advice. Right now, it looks like all Berlin Station promo and charity asks.
Perry said this on August 10, 2016 at 2:37 am | Reply
Brophy is a master — but he’s really pulled back from FB himself in comparison to earlier.
Servetus said this on August 10, 2016 at 2:38 am | Reply
Brophy clearly runs his own page. I don’t anticipate Armitage engaging with fans on FB any more than he does on Twitter – even less.
Perry said this on August 10, 2016 at 3:04 am | Reply
Yeah. The comments are going to be brutal.
Servetus said this on August 10, 2016 at 3:48 pm | Reply
Yeah, Jed’s come in for his share of drama on FB which spills onto Twitter…. I picture this being “splained” to Richard that he has the biggest soc media fancount & the importance to Epix that this succeeds – especially since B Station is the lead-in for Graves too.

Long day of travel with Delta, flying from the east coast to west and I get a nice surprise after arriving home
valsgal1999 said this on August 10, 2016 at 2:39 am | Reply
This was surprising although I supposed considering EPIX’s preening about its cross platform strategy, it shouldn’t be.
Servetus said this on August 10, 2016 at 3:24 am | Reply
He is big on promotion. I can only hope, as we get closer to the premiere, he might appear on some evening “talk” shows.
valsgal1999 said this on August 10, 2016 at 3:49 am | Reply
I really hope so — although the fact that he didn’t do it for the Hobbit was curious.
I keep thinking the late night shows eventually must happen, in order for him to be seen as “top tier”.

I worder who are all the ladies pics of whom he (his team) posted on Facebook with a comment “You know what I’m saying?” https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=222139458187461&substory_index=0&id=219699141764826

Too many platforms so little time. I don’t want to follow these myself. I rely on you, Serv to pass on the information. I hope you will have plenty of time to cover the new sources for all of us who are too busy/lazy to look at them first-hand. I am counting on you. 🙂

Me too! 😉

I think it’s going to be the same info on three different platforms, but it’s no trouble for me to follow FB which I use all the time anyway. So I’ll only have to add instagram.
I assume there will be a lot of publicity type cross posting in light of BSt. I moved away from fb for reasons and don’t plan to really go back. I sorta doubt postings will be different cross platforms so hopefully time-saving to keep looking at just one 😉 Unless he plans to expand on his photographic talents on Instagram, which i would totally be on board with.
And i’m sure there are additional pairs of hands 😉
Hariclea said this on August 10, 2016 at 3:22 pm | Reply
FB is really problematic. I hope the BSt people know how the FB advertising algorithm works (and fans know what theyhave to do to boost the account), but I’m not too optimistic based on what I saw last week.
Servetus said this on August 10, 2016 at 3:50 pm | Reply
i hope so too as i have no clue and my appetite to learn more about fb is sadly zero; i’ll leave it to the professionals and limit myself to broadcasting articles to see how it will do in terms of audience, where it will sell, etc
Hariclea said this on August 10, 2016 at 3:53 pm | Reply
I should maybe post something about FB algorithms, but then again, I’m not his publicist.
Servetus said this on August 11, 2016 at 10:52 pm | Reply
Oh and strange he/they choose this pic, slightly over-exposed i feel (deer in headlights effect) and it is one of the few where the make up show really starkly. Meh. But i’m meh on the new profile photo too, so hm.
Hariclea said this on August 10, 2016 at 3:25 pm | Reply
Hariclea, not my fav pic, either. Not very proportioned as his legs look small for a tall man.
valsgal1999 said this on August 11, 2016 at 3:08 am | Reply
yes that is one of my problems with most of them the ‘bobblehead’ perspective which is due to the fact that the photographer didn’t kneel/duck down when taking the picture so it is taken from standing and a bit too close so the upper part of the body and especially head appear to be bigger than the lower. It seems to be common in a lot of these types of photo shoots, but still annoying 😦
Hariclea said this on August 11, 2016 at 9:12 am | Reply
his head is also disproportionately large (apparently true of many actors). https://ancientarmitage.wordpress.com/2013/05/17/richard-armitage-and-the-classical-canon-of-sculptural-proportions/

Serv, Love the link and TY. What can I say, I have a thing for tall and angular men. Recent pics of RA, compared to two years ago, show him much thinner, IMO. My husband is 6’1″ and has a more slender build.
valsgal1999 said this on August 12, 2016 at 1:57 am | Reply
Armitage is definitely getting much more angular.

I know i sound like a giddy school girl with a crush, but i am so excited that Mr. Richard Armitage is on facebook,(even though you can leave a reply to him and he might answer, I would freak out. I rather just leave my comments here and a couple of other blogs. I have a feeling that Mr. Richard Armitage only open this account and Instagram because the people from berlin station, and other people told him too. just the way it says in the picture(above),” alright I did it ” sounds like he didn’t really want to do it. it makes me feels like he is acting like an outcast trying to please and do anything the cool crowd tells him to do. he should be a man and tell these people that he doesn’t want to do it. I know at first he didn’t want to do twitter, but then he wanted people to get to know the real him and the charities that he is doing, so he chose twitter. if these people really want everybody to know about berlin station why not do billboards, television, radio, magazines, etc.

Nothing wrote with being happy about it!
[…] not. And yes, I agree it was hard to attribute intention when he only had 140 characters, but in 2016, he got FB. I thought that would make things easier for him, but it apparently did not. There was a certain […]
