Generating Their Own Interest

Image courtesy of www.philstar.com

With technology and the popularity of social networking, fans are able to create sites to show their appreciation (or the opposite) for the shows they love or for their idols. Some fans even write fan fiction to depict their own views on how stories should run in their favorite tv programs. Some fans create artwork or photo collages in tribute to their idols.

Still, some fans create parallel or parody accounts of famous celebrities. Sadly, these accounts are often ways for anonymous people to release harsh criticism. Of course, some people are gullible enough to believe that the parallel accounts are the real accounts of the celebrities.

However, the most common social network tributes to a performer are fan sites. Fans can be so overwhelmed that they make unauthorized or sometimes with permission accounts designed to help in the career of their objects of affection. These sites update the public on the lives of the stars. As a marketing tool, generating interest via cyberspace or IT is important for this generation of talents and performers.

The problem is what if no fan actually shows interest in making a tribute FB page or even a social network account for a talent. What should talents do? Well, they make their own sites and pass it on as having been made by their fans. Allegedly, two female talents who shuttle from magazine covers to TV/movie appearances have taken matters in their own hands to generate fan interest via the web. Both sites have the same first two words and differ only in the third word in the title of their sites. Thus, FT 1 and FT2 are branded “famewhores” in their ways of achieving their 15 minutes of fame. By the way, FT1 has the “what you see is what you get” attitude, while FT2 seems to be the opposite. FT2 has that meek look in contrast to the dominating look of FT1, but be careful, FT2 has her feisty ways. As we have a saying in Filipino, “nasa loob ang kulo.”

  18. Do your homework. Sabi ni FP rumaraket between magazine cover and tv/movie appearances. Plus yung 2 starlet ay pareho ang 1st 2 words ng kanilang website or blog or fan site. Ilabas ang inyong detective skills. Go!

    ReplyDelete
  19. hahaha. oo nga naman. if we all get the answers easily and correctly (ata), e di sikat na ang dalawa. clever. di natin mahulaan kase hindi sikat at kelangan sila pa ang gumawa ng way para pag-usapan.

  35. Sa mga nangangarap, wag lalagyan ng "i love" ang mga social media names at ito pala ay isang indikasyon ng pagkafamewhore! Makes sense! Bakit mo naman lalagyan ng "i love" na parang obligado pa ang tao na mahalin ka.
