Athletes and celebrities hold a certain amount if power or carry a certain amount of Klout if you will in the online space. They attract so much attention that whenever they post, they will immediately get blasted by haters or retweeted like crazy by fans. So whenever a celebrity uses social media to educate, I am always intrigued.
Ray Allen for those who don’t know, is deciding where he will end up playing in the NBA and many basketball fans are wrapped up about exactly where. He gets bombarded day after day with the question of, “Where will you play, Ray?” Well, Mr. Allen took the opportunity to educate with an Instagram post.
It’s so easy to get lost using social media as a way to get attention not only from your friends but also celebrities who seem out of reach. But Ray reminds his followers exactly what it could be used for…
- Educating Yourself
- Making an Impact
- Connecting with People you may never have met
A hat tip to Ray Allen for educating all of his fans on just how powerful we ALL can be using the tools this generation has been given.
