Whenever something fun happens, what is the first thought that pops in your head? If your answer is Post on Facebook, you are not alone. Very few of us every get very far from our screens and FB is our go-to place to share pics and jokes, and connect with friends, companies and brands. Then there is our guilty pleasure – checking in on what our favourite stars are up to and some are giving up the goods. While not all celebrities have the Power of Facebook figured out, some have us hooked on their pages because they’re really personal. Here are our fave 5 who not only use the social network daily but give fans an intimate, unfiltered look at their lives, work, humour and wisdom. Just click Like and you’ll get it all in your stream. Here’s where and why we’re tuning in.
Stephen Amell Best known for his role as Oliver Queen on the CW hit show Arrow, this Canadian hottie has figured out how to keep fans virtually entertained. He’s like the guy next door – answering questions directly on his page, posting pics from the set of the show and even offering up an exclusive, behind-the-scenes peek into his real life when he reached 1 million followers. He’s on there all the time and therefore, so are we.

Why We Follow Him: Hottie with a cause! Anyone who can gain 52,000 Likes on a photo wearing F#CK CANCER sunglasses is Like-worthy.
James Franco One might think this Hollywood A-lister is too cool for FB but his page proves he’s just a guy who takes selfies like the rest of us. Check in to see a lot of randomness from his life, including pics from his early acting days and shots of him meeting other celebs. Instagram is another story. When a recent ‘secret’ conversation was leaked, it lit up the Internet with controversy. Hmmm…Was this just one big PR stunt for his new movie Palo Alto, which just happens to be about an underage girl in an affair with her soccer coach? We’re following the story – and his FB wall.

Sophia Vergara Unofficially the Selfie Queen of Facebook, this Modern Family matriarch has a Facebook page plastered with a smiles and positivity. If you’re a fan of the show that’s reached cult status, you’ll want the inside scoop that includes pictures of her friends and family and behind-the-scenes on-set selfies with her co-stars. Before awards ceremonies, Sophia documents her pre-awards rituals and appointments so we are rooting for her even before she gets glam and hits the stage.
