In order to maintain image, and uphold a strong fan base, celebrities utilize social network websites such as Facebook to attempt to communicate with their fans around the world. But, Facebook is a public domain where millions of users can create accounts, it is easy to create a fake account of a celebrity. As a result, those insane people misuse the account in the name of a particular celebrity and write abusing comments, opinion and speculate them all over the internet. These activities in the end tarnish the image of that celebrity.
Ollywood industry is also active in Facebook. Starting from legendary actor actresses to current super stars, many of the Odia celebrity has an account in Facebook. But recently, some instances of fake account of Ollywood celebrities have caught the eyes of media.
Ollywood’s singing star Babushan is currently grieved over seeing an account in his name doing rounds in Facebook. The person who is controlling the account is abusing the followers who believe the account is of Babushan. Similarly, Prakruti Mishra, the new Ollywood diva, has expressed his sorrow regarding a fake account of her in Facebook. The case is the same as that of Babushan as the person scolding, abusing peoples in foul and rude language. While Facebook for celebrity is a fruitful ground for communication, and keeping contact with fans, sometimes it is a nuisance only because of these types of insane people.
Celebrities have conveyed concern over these fake facebook accounts and requested fans not to indulge in such activities as it is breaching their privacy, public image and peace of mind.
