Many celebs double up on Facebook accounts

By Jeff Chung


Korean celebrities are using Facebook to keep in touch with each other and their fans. Most have two accounts, one for their public and another for personal use. How can you tell the difference? One giveaway is that on fan accounts, profile pictures are professional, whereas on the others, photos are more candid. Also, the number of friends is much larger on fan accounts. I have found Facebook to be a great tool for talking directly to celebrities, directors and producers, helping me to get the latest information on Korean entertainment.
