Do you follow celebs on Twitter or Facebook? I sometimes do.

I am a follower of some celebrities.

So far, nobody follows me back. Because, I am a nobody. And obscurity is a good thing.

I would not want to be hounded by millions of followers or fans as those in the limelight are.

If I could get some feedback from some of my favorite celebs on Twitter or Facebook I might be encouraged to interact a bit more with them if given half the chance, but maybe it is best that I don't. They would get pretty tired of my rants and most of the ones I favor who are actors and musicians are probably so busy they don't have the chance to comment or like my posts.

Still the question I am presenting here is, DO YOU FOLLOW Celebrities on social media?

Do you get shares and comments from them?

No, not a single one. I have absolutely no interest in following celebrities at all!

I do follow a few, but not may. I may follow some of my favourite bands or something.

I find it a waste of my time to even bother but I once thought I could get some kind of response. As a young person, years ago, I once got a response in the mail from a person who was an actress of one of my favorite t.v. series, Lost in Space. It was a autographed post card of Angela Cartwright. They used to encourage fan mail back in the day. Today, it seems unlikely to get a response from Twitter or Facebook by a celebrity due in large part to the massive numbers.

I am about the same now. If it is this much trouble why even bother? They all want their fame and think that interactions with non-celebrities and common people would be beneath their pay rate.

There used to be such things as fan clubs too, run by the actual fans. These days, celebrities are more likely to get "stalked"!!

When I first signed up on Facebook, I sent friend requests to some celebrities, because it tickled me that they might actually accept. Most of them did, actually! Some of them were fake accounts, and some were real accounts but were maintained by assistants who just posted photos and things for promotional purposes, but one of them maintained her own account. She actually responded directly to me one time in a comment. She seems like a nice lady, but her posts showed that she was pretty upset at several fake accounts on FB that claimed to be her, and at things posted about her online. I got the impression that she was a bit overwhelmed by all the stuff a famous person has to deal with, and that she had a fragile ego. She unfriended me eventually (I didn't take it personally at all--I think she was just withdrawing, getting rid of people whom she didn't actually know), so I don't know if she continued with her account, but I did get a glimpse into how some celebrities can react to the constant scrutiny--their job requires being famous and being exposed to everyone, but that can be as punishing as it is rewarding.

No I don't follow any and have no intention to follow any of them. I may like their music or the movie they play in but I figure, besides that I have nothing in common with any of them and could careless what they do outside entertaining me for a short while. Most of them seem to think they are above the average Joe and just cause you can sing or pretend to be someone else (acting) I don't think your better than anyone else. Also, I highly doubt the real famous are actually using those accounts they just have someone post things to promote themselves.

I wanted to be able to relate to some of my favorites because I always thought of my self as an actor of sorts. I did so many things in front of a camera that I was a real ham. I like the idea of being able to get feedback from some of them but it was not working out and I gave up trying to contact actors and entertainers. I managed to get a thank you from bloodrock for buying their latest album online but that was about it. I tried to follow people but it really is time demanding and I don't have time to do it any more.

for me, the closest thing to getting into the mind of a writer was to read a book about writing by Stephen King called ON Writing. When I read his books I feel like I can actually see into that person's window to the world in a sense. So for me the best thing to get to know a writer is to read their books and to get to know an entertainer is to just enjoy watching them on screen. That is basically all I need to understand where they are coming from and what they feel as a form of self expression. As for art, I would love to have a few pen pals who are artists. I have always wanted to know some personally. I find that they would provide me with great information to help me understand the arts in as much as they already have become masters in their own right.
