If you’re on Google+, you probably noticed that the ‘local’ stars are uber-geeks: most of the top followed profiles belong to people who work for Google (or Facebook!) But what about real celebrities?
Can Alyssa Milano, Ashton Kutcher, Felicia Day and William Shatner be the only online-savvy VIPs? Of course not: many of their fellow celebrities are there too, but they have gone unnoticed so far. Here are ten hidden gems we found for you:
Trent Reznor – 2,500 people have him in circles, very little compared to his 928,000 Twitter followers;
Mark Hoppus from Blink 182. Just so you know, he’s very active and already did a Google Hangout with fans;
Lloyd Banks, the rapper, not to be confused with Lloyds Bank (thanks Wikipedia…);
Joel Madden from the band Good Charlotte (and Nicole Richie’s husband);
Film & TV
Sasha Grey, starring in Steven Soderbergh’s ‘The Girlfriend Experience’, although you may know her as “that young lady who started in adult films”;
Lee Unkrich, Film Director at Pixar (Toy Story 3…);
Kevin Smith, Clerks’ Director;
Robert Luketic, Director of ‘Legally Blonde’.
Tony Hawk, skater.
