10 Celebrities With The Best Social Media Skills

10. Robert Downey Jr.

Robert Downey Jr. is relatively new to the whole social media thing, but being as hugely popular as he is, it didn’t take too long for him to grow a strong following. The Iron Man star currently has over 19 million Facebook likes and almost two million twitter followers. He regularly gets over 500,000 likes per Facebook post, and while he uses social media to market his movies – like many stars do – and post selfies, at least he’s clearly the one personally doing the posting (as opposed to having a social media team that posts in the third person).

9. Vin Diesel

Vin Diesel clearly likes social media. Besides his Fast & Furious franchise, Diesel stays relatively out of the spotlight, which is why his social media prowess is so astounding. He is the most-liked actor on Facebook with a whopping 80 million likes, and is the 9th most liked page on the site. He gains between 500,000 and 1 million likes per week.

8. Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde has starred in numerous television shows (such as The O.C. and House) and film productions (like Tron: Legacy and Cowboys & Aliens). She didn’t truly get her legs, though, until her hilarity via Twitter became apparent. With 1.5 million viewers, she doesn’t have quite the reach as some stars, but her comical posts are usually retweeted thousands of time.

7.  Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen has more than filled the gap left by Oprah Winfrey as the queen of daytime talk show hosts. She can also be considered the queen of Twitter, with 29.5 million followers. Besides posting hilarious day-to-day updates about her life, she is also a staunch supporter of LGBT rights, and uses her Twitter popularity to advocate various social issues.

6. Oprah Winfrey

It’s hard to imagine a ‘most popular’ or ‘most charitable’ or ‘most inspiring’ report without mentioning Oprah Winfrey. She has 24.6 million Twitter followers and over 10 million Facebook likes, and she has mastered the art of interactive with her fans on social media. She’s constantly tweeting, Skype-ing, Facebooking, and giving encouraging and inspiring advice to her readers.

5. Leonardo DiCaprio

Leo has over 10 million Twitter followers and 11.6 million Facebook likes. He is also one of the only stars-turned-social media enthusiasts who uses his widely-influencing network to solely propagate environmental and political issues. Just in May and June 2014 alone he’s pledged $7 million to ocean conservation projects through his Foundation, donated $1 million to the Elephant Crisis Fund to stop ivory poaching and trafficking, raised issues against “ghost fishing,” and donated $3 million to Oceana to protect sharks, marine animals, and habitats.

4. Ashton Kutcher

Ashton Kutcher has really gotten into stride recently with his awesome and inspiring speeches and social activism. The That 70s Show star has really shown us that he isn’t like Kelso – a dumb, charming, good-looking face – but he’s actually intelligent, well-spoken, thoughtful, and motivational. He has really become the voice of a young generation that looks up to him with adoration.

3. John Green

This guy is awesome. If you don’t know who John Greene is, you haven’t been paying attention to book or movie charts. He is the author of The Fault in Our Stars, a young adult novel that debuted at number 1 on The New York Times Best Seller list, and stayed on the list for over 150 weeks. The 2014 film adaptation of the book opened at #1 in the box office. He was included by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2014.

2. George Takei

Uncle George, as he is aptly called by fans, could have disappeared from the spotlight and lived a cozy life outside of the public eye after Star Trek, and he still would have been loved by fans. Instead, he chose the opposite route. It has been (jokingly) said that Takei’s career only began when he turned 70. This isn’t that far from the truth, as the actor and political activist became a social media phenomenon.

1. Elise Andrew

The number one celebrity on this list might not even be considered a celebrity to some, and she might be completely unknown to others. Well, Elise Andrew is the founder of I F**king Love Science (IFLS), one of the most popular pages on Facebook, with over 17 million likes. If anyone is using social media to its fullest potential, it is this young lady (she’s only like 25). Unlike everyone else on this list, who were famous before their profiles or Twitter handles came about, Elise Andrew owes all of her celebrity status to her Facebook page, IFLS.
