Seven of the most popular names in the entertainment industry were included in this year’s Forbes 100 list of Asia-Pacific’s most influential celebrities on social media.
Forbes Asia last week released its 100 Digital Stars list which features singers, bands, film, and TV stars with huge social media influence. It also noted the list included celebrities who “have also used their influence to support worthy causes, especially those with a Covid-19 focus.”
Among the stars mentioned were Angel Locsin, Marian Rivera-Dantes, Kim Chiu, Anne Curtis, Vice Ganda, Kathryn Bernardo, and Sarah Geronimo.
Locsin, who also landed in Forbes Asia‘s “Heroes of Philanthropy” list last year, was cited for her COVID-19 initiative which raised 11.3 million pesos and aided 135 hospitals.
Meanwhile, Marian Rivera-Dantes was acknowledged for her large social media following. She is the Philippines’ most popular celebrity on Facebook, with a total of 23 million followers.
