This #TBT connect with your favorite 90’s stars on Starsona!
Written by Michelle Mitchell, HVY Journalists
With Netflix’s latest announcement about Moesha, The Game, Girlfriends, and more, all of Black Twitter is buzzing about their favorite 90’s shows! Remember when Julie went up the stairs on Family Matters and never came back down? Remember when Sweet Pea taught Jodie how to throw a punch on Baby Boy? Remember when Niecy & Moesha served the best in 90’s fashion on Moesha? Needless to say, shows like Family Matters, Baby Boy, and Moesha will go down as some of the best shows of our youth! Ever wonder what is going on with some of these stars? We are connected now more than ever given the myriad of available social media channels. We follow people we’re interested in, look up to, or just enjoy being a fan of. However, it’s nearly impossible to hear directly from those illustrious Stars you follow, especially if they have tens of thousands of followers until now with Starsona!
Starsona enables Stars a way to build a direct relationship with the fans who most support them. Experiences include video shoutouts, 1:1 interactions, personalized merch, DMs and so much more.
Fans looking for a way to hear directly from their fav Stars can look no further than Starsona. Starsona recently launched a new product which provides the opportunity to do just that through DMs! Stars are now making themselves available for fans willing to pay for a personal, 1:1 interaction. The cost is more than affordable, and less expensive than the cost of a meet and greet, starting at $2 for many Stars on the platform.
“We kept hearing interest from both fans and Stars about direct messaging. Stars were concerned with being able to DM without compromising their personal contact information. For fans, there’s quite a bit of noise and clutter when it comes to DMing a Star on social media. They’re competing with thousands of fans, and the likelihood of a Star tapping them back is slim to none. With Starsona’s messaging feature, we’re combining the best of both worlds… an intermediated experience with a direct line to their favorite Star.”

Stars are jumping to add DM’s to their Starsona page. Matthew Dellavedova (Delly), is an NBA Champion with the Cleveland Cavaliers and on Starsona. Delly’s from Australia and it makes sense his first DM was from a fellow Aussie and fan. The fan was interested in finding out where to buy a replica jersey worn at 2015 Rising Star Game as well as some gear from his 2016 Finals run. Delly DM’d his response directly to the fan through the Starsona platform without compromising his personal information and the fan had a unique opportunity to hear from Delly himself!
