Whilst checking on my Facebook news feed this morning, I saw a link from the Zachary Quinto fan page to his new community. I already knew that Quinto was active on social media, so was intrigued to take a look and see what his community is all about.
Launched only a few hours ago (27 July USA time), the Zach Quinto Community is something akin to Facebook, a stream of his other social network accounts, with fans able to join, create an avatar and profile, comment and add their own posts to the stream. It’s very simple, and yet a very effective way for fans to keep an eye on what Quinto is up to and be able to interact with him. The community is hosted neatly within the Zachary Quinto Website.
Quinto’s other social media endeavours are also working well. He’s on Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and YouTube (as a co-founder of Before The Door productions). Of course, it’s not enough just to create accounts on every social network out there. Quinto (or perhaps his minions) do an excellent job of keeping in touch with fans not only in the form of status updates, but also by sharing photos and videos.
A job very well done.
Have you seen any other celebrities who are doing a great job in social media?
