It’s still in beta and not open to the general public, but that seems to be part of the appeal of WhoSay, a relatively new social media service that authenticates celebrity accounts and gives them a platform to connect with fans. It appears to be positioning itself as a more personalized and interactive version of Twitter for famous people and their fans.
WhoSay is not widely known among the Twitter community as of yet, but it appears to be positioning itself as a more personalized and interactive version of Twitter for famous people and their fans. It’s a mesh of Twitter-like functionalities and a personalized website, a service that directly addresses the criticism that tweets so often get lost in the rapidly-moving data feed. It’s easy to imagine the celebrity Twitter-verse shifting focus to this new service, if only to provide fans with a more voyeuristic view into their photo and video albums in an easy-accessible and interactive format.
WhoSay allows their “personalities” to brand themselves, post videos, pictures, and status updates with links to their various social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. It’s incredibly easy to interact with the posters, since commenting is allowed the the celebrities often reply back in a single thread that’s simple to follow.
Chelsea Handler is a great example of an active WhoSay user, and fans clearly enjoy the commenting feature when she shares photos or videos. Sports, comedic, TV, news and movie stars alike are getting in on the action in addition to, in most cases, their existing Twitter activities.
Is your favorite celebrity on WhoSay? It’s not easy to tell unless you google “WhoSay” and their names…but finding one is often a goldmine of entertainment from these entertainers.
