VIDYA BALAN GETS HOOKED TO SOCIAL MEDIA

That she is becoming media savvy was quite evident with her move to join Facebook today. Vidya Balan, who’s already active on Twitter and Instagram, was all praises for social media in an interview with a daily. “It allows you to connect with people. Interacting personally with so many people at the same time is not humanly possible. I love talking to people, whether it is at a shoot, an event or a social function. I’m already active on Instagram, as I love taking photos and sharing them. I have some experience with Twitter, and now I am also going to be on Facebook. I like the fact that I can say all I want to on Facebook, as it doesn’t have limited space for posts. Now, I will be more active on social media,” she reportedly said.

The actress, however, draws a line when it comes to technology – be it social media or her phone. “On Sundays, I don’t respond to messages. Once Siddharth (Roy Kapur; husband) and I are at home, I don’t respond to messages. During meetings, my phone is kept face down. Otherwise, you keep looking at your phone. We have to decide what our priorities are. People get obsessed with social media, but we have to decide the extent of its usage,” she was quoted as saying.
