Vin Diesel Says that Facebook owes Him Billions

Vin Diesel is in cinemas right now with Fast and Furious 6. The famous actor is not just a box office hit, he is also a social media star. His Facebook page has over 40 million likes. Why? In a new interview on Entertainment Weekly Vin Diesel explains that he got into the game early and understood how it works.

Vin Diesel started his Facebook Page in early 2009. He got the pretty quickly the #1 page. The reason for it he says was that he directly talked to his fans. Quote: "And it was only because I said: “Hi, guys, I love you.”" He said that Facebook was even asking him to tell his secret and why he got so many fans. Quote: "What was unique was: I never let anyone do a post, I never let anyone post for me in the last four years. My audience knows me so well on the page that if my producing partner’s in the room when I post, they’ll know somebody was around me. That’s kind of cool, that’s how sophisticated they are. Facebook really owes me billions of dollars. But whatever. [Laughs]"

There you have it. Vin Diesel got social right already four years ago. Check out his Facebook fan page.
