There is no denying it – social media is an extremely powerful tool. Celebrities use it for everything, from raising their profile to earning big bucks through promotion, but it also has some negative effects – it can cause a lack of privacy and there is often backlash if they say something that isn’t totally politically correct. These 5 stars have spoken on how powerful social media is and how they feel about it.
Ashton is amazed by how powerful it can be: “In some ways this is kind of a commentary on the state of media. I believe we are at a place now with social media where one person’s voice can be as powerful as a news network – an entire media network. That is the power of the social web… Through your own stream (you) can have a voice that’s as loud as a media network.”
