Social media is a very interesting thing, especially when it comes to the celebrities who use it, as there are different stars who have very different opinions about it. While some stars will use their various different social media accounts on a daily basis, there are others who are still refusing to get involved with it.
One star who is clearly a very big fan of social media, is the beautiful and talented actress Jessica Alba, who has opened up about what it means to her, her life, and her career. Jessica says that the main reason she is such a big fan of social media, is the fact that it gives her a voice.
Alba was chatting to Red magazine, when she explained, "So much of my life was in other people's hands. A movie studio would market me a certain way for a certain demographic, or a publisher had to portray me a certain way for their audience. I was this puppet, and I understood why, but I felt so disconnected from this version of me that everybody knew, or thought they know. Social media was the first time I really got to be authentic and speak in my own voice. It's so great to have an outlet where I can be me."
While there are a lot of positives to using social media, there are also plenty of negatives, with the main one being the people who use it simply to bully, victimise, and be mean to others. Online bullying needs to stop and there need to be more celebrities speaking out about it and making it a bigger issue than it currently is.
