You love social media. Everyone Does. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat etc. have taken over our lives and we cannot even force ourselves not to post statuses, photos, videos and updates about us and our favorite things and share them with the world. There are celebrities and then there are armies of fans. They regularly like, share, retweet and post about their favorite celebrities, hoping to get a reply back. This is where social media brings the fans closer to the fighters as well. They see them on press conferences, world tours and in photos but social media is the best option when they want to connect with them.
