I THOUGHT THEY WERE REAL.

When I joined Bubblews in August 2013, that was my first venture into online writing, I wasn't even a member of Facebook, so let's just say I was a bit dumb about the workings of these sites. Anyway, four months after joining Bubblews, I was on a high, my followers increased rapidly - and to my surprise - celebrities were among them. I can't remember all of them, but I know, Miley Cyrus, Robin Thicke, Cristiano Ronaldo and legendary cricketers were included . I began to wise up after noticing that posts from these "celebrities" were very few, if any at all, but this I attributed to their busy lifestyles. Then I was informed by another member that they were fake, but I would still like to think that at least one or two of them were for real. As it stands, the only celebrity follower I had who know was real, happened to be a member of the Bubblews administrative team.

Haha what a cute story to share with us. I am pretty darn naive myself but I never believe and of the celebs even on Facebook are real. My ex got a comment on one of his posts on Facebook from a celeb and I told him it was likely a fake account but he didn't want to believe it.

Yeah, this happens ..we have to double check before we connect with them. Also, even if they were the profiles of celebrities I doubt if they themselves maintain or maybe they have some personal assistant to handle them .. my assumption not sure though ..

You know it isn't impossible but the chance are very small very unlikely that they would have the time and if they did would they do it? They don't need the money and well if they became recognized it would probably just leave them having less privacy because it would spread like wild fire.

Celebrities do not have time for sites like bubblews. I feel they hire some professionals who post on sites on their behalf. Their intention to remain in public notice through their so called appearances on social networking sites.

Sites like this probably do not get much in the way of celebrities and in those days with Bubblews. Pretty sure many just did that because they thought they would get more likes, comments, views and shares. This driving how much money they make up. Facebook has a lot of celebrities you can follow and they do indeed post real post made by them, all though many of them have assistants who also post on their behalf. I actually have 3 friends on Facebook who befriended me and are pretty popular in punk rock circles. I did not know this until later, but one was and may still be in a band, and the other two sound like they work in the industry. Of course, not really my friend because do not know them, but cool because they share some interesting things.
