Internet brings stars and fans together

On a rare occasion, celebrities from ABS-CBN, GMA-7 and TV5 have come together for an extraordinary project. These stars include (L-R) Rico Blanco, Solenn Heussaff, Luis Manzano, Marian Rivera, Robin Padilla, Anne Curtis, KC Concepcion, Jericho Rosales, Jasmine Curtis Smith, James Reid and Nadine Lustre.


The Internet has become a valuable source for information and an incredibly powerful tool for connecting people. In this digital world, it pays to be connected online.

With the Internet, you can find out about celebrations as they happen, and view proceedings in real time.

Given the power and freedom the Internet provides, it also becomes a platform where stars and their fans directly interact. The online space has become everybody’s home—a level playing field for personalities regardless of affiliation.

In a rare occasion, celebrities from ABS-CBN, GMA-7 and TV5 were able to come together for a commercial heralding free Internet from Smart.

Anne Curtis and her sister Jasmine Curtis Smith enjoyed the chance to work together on this project even though they come from competing networks ABS-CBN and TV5, respectively.

James Reid and Nadine Lustre, one of the hottest loveteams today, also lent their time to be part of this landmark project that unites celebrities for a significant event.

It is also refreshing to see Kapamilya stars KC Concepcion and Luis Manzano in the same frame with Kapuso star Solenn Heussaff.

Likewise, Kapuso primetime queen Marian Rivera shares a hearty laugh with Kapamilya actor Jericho Rosales and singer Rico Blanco.

Take a peek of this extraordinary project by watching the video below:

INTERNET AND FREEDOM. Now more than ever, celebrities have the opportunity to interact with their fans as they use their social media accounts to make them more accessible.

A lot of celebrities use their Twitter and Facebook accounts the same way we do: posting interesting observations from their personal lives, sharing pictures of wherever they are (whether on the set or while taking vacations) and divulging funny or inspirational tidbits.

Anne Curtis, who has a Twitter following of over 7 million, regularly conducts a live Q&A on her account, answering followers’ questions by using the hashtag #AskAnne.

The TV host-actress has also launched a new platform to express herself when she created her new blogsite, ANNE.PH, to share her interests, new discoveries and likes, outside of her career.

Major life events are also a reason to celebrate online as celebrities often post about their birthdays, engagements and other happy occasions.

Beautiful bride-to-be Marian Rivera is fond of giving fans a sneak peek of preparations for her upcoming wedding to Dingdong Dantes through her Instagram account.

The Internet has also given artists, directors, musicians and writers new ways to share their work, without the limitations of companies that act as gatekeepers between creators and their fanbase.


Robin Padilla regularly updates his followers about his 2014 Metro Manila Film Fest entry Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo by sharing behind-the-scenes photos of this period film.

Even the love lives of stars are regularly documented through social media.
