Just as social media is growing, celebrities and their PR firms are also realizing how important it is for them to be on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and other such social networking platforms. Through these accounts, often celebrities or someone for them from their managements, update a status or tweet to let fans and followers know what is new that they should know about. It is proving to be a good marketing tool.
For those who use their social networking accounts themselves are able to build a genuine fan following online. But most of them are still to learn how to especially tweet responsibly. Some of the celebrities have even said to pay to gain more followers by asking social media marketing companies for it. However, regardless of how many followers they have on a site like Twitter, they do get into trouble dependently on their own by tweeting something which is questionable.
A prank that Justin Bieber played by posting first nine digits of a random phone number, which was actually located in Texas, and claimed that his followers can call him by simply finding out the right last digit. The phone rang to other people who were obviously distressed with the situation. Justin might face a lawsuit for this breach of privacy.
Many others also have gotten into trouble like Ashton Kutcher who would not know what to tweet about a person accused of child abuse. For such people as him who do not have a clear idea about values in life and have a big mouth to say whatever they want to, should remain away from social networking altogether.
