Social networking sites are a boon and a bane

Bollywood News

Guess what's bothering the film fraternity the most these days? Besides the tally of flops that keeps increasing week after week, there's another thing that's giving them sleepless nights - Facebook and Twitter. There's no denying that almost everyone in the film fraternity has started interacting with their fans on these two social networking websites, but a tiny section that's not on Facebook or Twitter are slowly learning about their impersonators interacting with their fans.

Remember how somone impersonating Kajol had issued a statement during the release of MY NAME IS KHAN? The comment was highlighted on national television [SRK, Kajol and KJo were in Germany at that point of time]. However, Kajol's hubby Ajay quickly denied the statement attributed to Kajol, adding that Kajol wasn't on Twitter and therefore, someone impersonating her had falsely issued a statement. A few weeks ago, Katrina Kaif too denied that she was on Facebook and Twitter. Now Ramgopal Varma tells me that it's not him on Twitter either. "I blog, that's it," RGV tells me.

What's worrying people, including celebrities, is that these fake accounts can actually prove dangerous since millions of fans across the globe swear by the statements made by the celebrities and even gullible journos, who, perhaps, may not have an access to those celebrities, would also endorse statements thinking that the asli celebrity has issued it.
