Facebook Fan Page: If you’re an actor, I suggest building a fan page that is professional and separate from your personal profile. The benefit is it’s an interactive online press kit that anyone can view especially if you don’t have a website. Your fan page should focus mostly on news, images, videos, and updates on your current work.
Twitter & Instagram: Twitter and Instagram are two great resources to share your press, information, and work. With the #hashtag and @ feature you have direct access to other actors, celebrities, directors, casting directors, etc making your posted content searchable and accessible. If you’re trying to get your new acting or modeling projects some publicity, Twitter & Instagram are the most effective. Best of all when you post on one you can automatically upload to the other.
MeetUp.com: Don’t like being stuck behind a screen socializing? Meet up is an excellent site that gives people the opportunity to plan and execute gatherings in their neighborhood based on similar interest like acting, modeling, singing, etc. The best way for an actor to use this service is to search for production and studio related events. At meet ups, you can expect a much more laid back vibe (unless noted otherwise) with people who just want to meet other people. You never know who you’ll meet, and at the end of the day, enjoying the company of like-minded individuals is wonderful.
