What do we offer to our consumers?
The numerous fake profiles of stars spread across the social media are intensely frustrating for both the celebrities and fans alike. Although the celebrities wanted to reach out to their fans, there was no social media platform present that offered them complete control of their content.
Similarly for the fans, while they wanted to reach out to their favourite celebrities, they were most often misled through the rut of fake profiles.

The celebrities share updates, images, audio and video messages with fans, which the fans not only receive with real-time notification, but can further share them on other major social media platforms as Facebook , Twitter and Google plus.
