Using Social Media to Perform Parasocial Relationships with Celebrities

This research is being conducted to create a better understanding of how parasocial relationships are developed by young adults with actors, artists/musicians, and fictional characters. This research aims to understand the extent of how Tumblr users interact and follow celebrities or fictional characters and the attachment they form to them. The participants will fill out an online survey asking questions about their emotional intensity and dedication to a celebrity or fictional character as well as whether you share about them and what technology they use. Participants may skip any questions that she/he would prefer not to answer.
