One Response to Fameus announces official launch party & VIP reception – Beverly Hills, CA

    I am a Television Journalism student graduating in December and shortly looking for a full time job that I can use my degree and skills for. I have yet to hear of this new social network site until coming across your blog about Fameus. I am excited and interested in checking out Fameus and seeing how it connects all of the members in the entertainment industry. I am currently blogging about entertainment news and the entertainment industry and how social media has such a big impact on entertainment. This new social network is a great example for me to look into because it appears like it is the next new “it” for entertainment professionals. I am interested to see if this social media site will really help connect users and provide opportunities that would not be found elsewhere. However my question is, the entertainment business IS competitive. I wonder what negative comments or reactions will be made, and if there will be any problems or increases in the job hunt. Regardless, I am all for the idea of a social network made specifically for entertainment, because I would gladly post my reporter resume reel on this website as well!
