Zac Efron and Social Media

It looks as though Zac's people are gearing up to establish an online presence for him. We're trying to get official confirmation of this and if/when we do, I'll let you know. But recently several things have changed that make me 99% sure that part of his gearing up for TLO promo is going to include engaging in social media. Here's the evidence.

One

"Zac Efron joined Facebook"... here. That in and of itself isn't that interesting. Buuuuuut his publicist liked that notification (she really should unlike it so she isn't hounded by fb crazies):



Then they started posting using WhoSay, the celeb social media service. If you aren't familiar with WhoSay, they describe themselves thusly, "WhoSay is a service that helps artists, athletes and iconic personalities connect with their fans. When you see someone posting via WhoSay, you'll know that it's real, authentic messages, photos and videos coming from your favorite people." So not just any Joe Schmoe can fake WhoSay. That to me is the biggest reason I think it is all legit.



Also, there are two Ben Watts shots not previously released posted to this Facebook.

Two

His people have seemingly taken over the twitter user name @zacefron, resetting the account, deleting all old followers and all old (stupid) messages. They also followed WhoSay.

Three

There is now a Zac Efron WhoSay account AND it links to the twitter and Facebook. It also has Collapse )

The fourth thing is less certain so it doesn't get bold/big, lol... but his domain zacefron.com (which his people have owned for a long time), possibly is in the process of being loaded with content. This is totally a guess based on the white screen it is defaulting to. jeezbee thinks it used to be some generic error/host message.

So all that put together, especially the WhoSay parts, and I feel it is pretty legit.

ETA: I realized I should really thank unwrapme for pointing out the facebook's existence to me and also thank jeezbee. Both were instrumental in connecting the dots.
