I have decided to look at Ellen DeGeneres. Ellen DeGeneres is an American Comedian, Television Host, actress, Writer, and Producer. She was born on January 26, 1958. She is married to Portia De Rossi.
Ellen DeGeneres is a host to her own TV shows called the Ellen show. Which is one reason why she become famous, she also is an actress in some of the most famous like the Finding Nemo, and Finding Dory in both movies she played Dory.
Ellen DeGeneres’s branding that she is trying to get across to her fans or audience, is be kind to one another. She is all about helping others in times where they needed it or just being kind and I love that and its true you need to be kind to one another, you never know what the other person is going through.
Social Media Overview
Ellen DeGeneres has a wide variety of social media. She has Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube or what she calls it Ellen Tube, Tumblr, Pinterest, and Vine. Some of those Social media accounts we didn’t talk about in class but will mention them briefly. Lets now look at each social media account.
On Ellen’s Facebook page there are 27,208,064 people like her page and she ahs 26,067,387 people follow her. On her page it seems to be that she posts a lot of pictures and videos with captions. It all seems like she posts often, as in more than once a day. But it doesn’t look like there is much interaction with her fans, her fans post comments on her posts but she doesn’t seem to reply.
If you want to find Ellen on Twitter, her twitter name is, @TheEllenShow she is following 36.1K users on twitter and she has 67.5M followers. On her Twitter page she posts photos, videos and tweets! She does add people to her tweets and hash tags. She posts daily or more than once a day, which is good it keeps or her fans up to date. She doesn’t seem to have a strong fan interaction by tweeting back to them, just adding some people into her tweets but they seem to be people that have been on her show or other “famous people”.
There seems to be two instagram accounts on for Ellen and one for her Show. If you would like to just follow Ellen, her username is Ellen_Degeneres, that instagram account has 230K followers and she is following 31 people. This account is more just picture’s of Ellen her self. She rarely posts on this account and there is no fan interaction. The Ellen Show instgrams username is theellenshow, this account has 45.1M followers and she is following 290. This account is pictures and videos of her show, and she posts almost daily on this with barely any fan interaction.
Ellen posts on YouTube about her show, but she also has her own channel called Ellen Tube. On YouTube she has 19,727,169 subscribers. On YouTube she posts videos that happened on her show, with barely any fan interaction, but she seems to post daily, sometimes more than once.

When doing a basic Google search of “Ellen DeGeneres” you can certainly find a lot about Ellen. What I found was that is a comedian, and a basic little bit about her, her height. I also found pictures of just her. We know if you didn’t already know that she has her own show. You can see her different social media pages, her more popular ones like Facebook and twitter. Some of the movies she is in like, Finding Nemo, and Finding Dory. Some Quotes she says, you can also find some of her recent nominations, like MTV Movie and TV award for best host. You defiantly can find a lot about a persons digital footprint.
Analysis and Evaluation
I believe that Ellen is doing a great job on each of her social media accounts; she posts often on the big ones like the Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. She is constantly posting on her social media accounts and keeping her fans up to date. Her post are funny and there to bright up anyones day. The other ones she doesn’t post a lot on, but I personally don’t usually use those ones like Tumblr, Pinterest and Vine, I think they have slowly faded there way out of the popularity on social media. I think her digital footprint sticks to her brand of being kind to one another because her digital footprint doesn’t show anything bad about her and keeps the positive things there to show you what she is all about.
Conclusion and Recommendations
One thing as I have already previously mentioned she does an excellent job with posting on social media and keeping her fans up to date on what she is up to. One thing I think she isn’t doing to well is the fan interaction on all her Social media accounts, she could do some more with that, but maybe that’s just her way of branding her self by not commenting back to all, but if you do tweet or use social media to her, she may mention it on her show or somehow get in contact with you, so maybe that’s her way of her fan interaction. She might be trying to distant her self from her fans more than staying connected with them. I think I would recommend to maybe comment her have more fan interaction, other than that Ellen does a great job at using her social media to create her brand and her self, and for enjoyment to make the social media pages that follow her happy and not all about the killing stuff that has been going on social media! I recommend you all go follow Ellen because her posts are bound to brighten up your day!
