Using Social Media to get Famous

Posted: March 21, 2012 in Uncategorized

Every now and again you come across people who have used social media to make money or to use it to get ridiculously famous. Since there are so many active social media users, there are a lot of people who can easily watch you on the internet. There are many ways which social media can break you into different kinds of industries.

I think that if you want to get famous through social media, you have to make sure that you are picking the right social media websites. If you compare Myspace to Facebook, internet artists have always gone for Facebook, as Lady Ga Ga has 1.5 million friends on Myspace compared to 31 million likes on Facebook. You have to have a clear idea on how to market your music. Uploading your tracks free of charge that you have made is a good way of getting yourself out there, as it gives people a good idea on who you are and it shows that you are committed. Also using the popular website YouTube to get people involved with watching your music videos and gives people a chance to give you feedback on what they think, which you can use to improve your music skills. A  good example is Justin Beiber, a pop singer discovered by Scooter Braun, who came across Beibers videos on YouTube and later became his manager. Another one is the singer Rebecca Black who also posted a video of her singing a hit song “Friday” which her mum paid for ($4000). This clearly proves that anyone can do it.

Another way that people can use social media to get famous is the use of blogs. People who just speak there mind and write about their lives can actually get a large fanbase behind them, if they add some humour into it which people like. A good example is an american guy named Tucker Max. He created a blog about his party life and his nights out which would always end with amusing things that would happen to him. Just from gaining a large fanbase through his blog’s, this lead on to him writing a book about his life and later on an actual movie that hit the big screens.
