Canadian tech CEO and entrepreneur Bruce Fikowski shares with Global News Toronto personality Peter Shurman the answer to, “How do we fix or replace the broken social media model?”
Reporters, editors, producers, hosts and bloggers follow a rhythm determined by deadlines, competitors, show times and breaking news beyond their control.

Opportunities abound, however, to gauge that rhythm and work within it to ensure absolute benefits.
