That’s right, Lady Gaga fans can join her very own social network, LittleMonsters.com, which is now open to everyone.
When Twitter first saw celebrities like Ashton Kutcher and Gaga join the network, it changed the game pretty quickly. Now, fanatics everywhere can follow their favorite celebs’ (almost) every move with very little effort. LittleMonsters.com seems to be one of the first sites that’s taking it a step further.
Gaga’s site, which looks like a combination between Tumblr and Pinterest, lets its users interact with and post anything related to LGBT issues, Gaga’s upcoming events, fashion, etc. The twist here? Lady Gaga herself will sign on to the site and interact with her fans as well. It’s almost like the fan clubs of yesteryear with interaction with the actual boy band or teen heartthrob instead of the ambiguous president of the fan club.
Lady Gaga’s cult following makes this social effort a very interesting one to start off this possible new trend with celebrity-fan connection. I’m not expecting there to be a huge influx of celebrity based social sites, not everyone has the fascination that Lady Gaga has (whether you like her or not). What I am expecting, is a change in the way people want to engage with their favorite celebs, brands, organizations, etc.
To wrap this thing up, I’d like to compile a list of possible celebrities that may jump on the Gaga-bandwagon and start their own social networks:
- The Kardashians – In fact, they may be upset that they didn’t get to it first.
- Kanye West – Let’s face it. He has a lot to say.
- Ryan Gossling – Pinterest already seems to be all about him these days anyway.
- Daniel Tosh – Just think of all the comments he’ll come up with in response to fans.
- Angelina Jolie – If her leg can have a Twitter account, it seems fair for her to have a social network, too.
