More And More Stars & Celebrities Now Have Their Own Vlogs: Is This Good Or Bad For Them?

MORE AND MORE stars and celebrities are starting to have their own vlog or youtube channel. Aside from Barbie, we have Kris Aquino, Bea Alonzo, Alex Gonzaga, Winwyn Marquez and also many showbiz reporters who now take videos during presscons, just like other bloggers, which they then post on their site.
Try watching them and tell us who you find amusing or entertaining. Barbie is definitely worth watching as she can be funny with her natural witticisms as a female faggot. But the others are just plain boring and a waste of time. They give you the feeling that they are positively sure that they’re the center of the universe.

But there’s a danger to all this, just like what happened when celebrities started to have their own Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts where they post anything and everything that’s happening in their lives, including kudas, hanash, rants that are better kept private. Their private lives are now out in the open for everyone’s consumption and they’ve given access to the common person to bash the stars they used to look up to.

And the common person can now be a celebrity himself through the internet, posting his own private videos and airing his opinions and grievances on what suits his fancy. We now witness a new set of so-called internet sensations who get hits and become known by blogging, dancing, singing, etc. Anyone and everyone can have the chance to be known about virtually anything, even with innocuous things like kids opening gifts and presents.

Social media has really become a game changer especially for those who enjoy having accessibility and an interactive relationship with their fans. Advertisers have adopted to this new trend and now take the necessary approaches for better brand recall. But stars have since lost their mystique and mystery as celebrities and they’ve become as common as the rest of us. We won’t wonder if the people would just prefer to watch them on their youtube channels and no longer in their TV shows and movies.
