Vin Diesel shares ‘Fast and Furious 7’ still photos with many millions of friends

I’m lagging a bit behind in my Facebook friend count.

I found an interesting bit about Vin Diesel’s fan page while researching this week’s installmennt for my Film News blog over at the wonderful Syracuse New Times site.

Mr. Diesel and the rest of the cast were given a preview of the trailer for “Fast and Furious 7,” and he took to his Facebook account to tell how proud he was of it. He also shared two still photographs from the seventh installment, one showing his character talking to that of the guy played by Paul Walker.

Yes, as we know, Walker died in a car crash himself apart from the filming of this adventure franchise about car chases.

Sigh.

The sad picture went out to 85 million fans. Wait. Make that 85.3 million. Vin, sir? Can I borrow your .3?

Also this week, I spotted an item about the possibility that William Shatner may return for a “Star Trek 3” tie-in and tie-up in 2016.

If you’d like to read my blog over there, which includes links that will take you to the Screen Rant and Cinema Blend items with the photos and original stories from which I spotted said news items, click the link below.

Is your Facebook page filled with news from your likes of many actors, musicians, celebrities, and if so, who gives you the best reports? Fan page, I don’t have no stinkin’ fan page, you can just friend me through my regular Facebook page, so … do you friend a lot of bloggers on Facebook, and do you find it helpful? I’m on Twitter and LinkedIn, and I Tweet and post thereabout every post. But I don’t extend myself to Pinterest and Tumblr and all those other buttons they give us here on WordPress; are you, and if you are, please tell us about those social media and why we should partake, too.

  1. I don’t do a lot of the fan page stuff, but I do find certain actors/musicians and friend them on FB. Classic TV has a lot of nice actors that are happy to be FB friends. I do Twitter, too, and while I’m signed up for other sites, I don’t really use them. πŸ™‚

  2. My blog auto updates to Twitter, my FB page (not personal, bloggy one) and Tumblr. I just started on Pinterest, mainly out of insomnia boredom, which is also why I have Tumblr. LinkedIn….just sits there until I get the occasional network request. Twitter is also good for random rants that I dont feel like spamming my FB friends with πŸ™‚

    My personal FB page has a good number of bloggers I consider trustworthy as well as other friends that I have met through other online communities that have extended to offline connections.

  3. I’ve never seen a Fast and Furious movie, but was saddened by Mr. Walker’s death. Anyone who passes before they have aged gracefully and having lived a full life…saddens me.

    I post my blog on FB for those who don’t follow and have requested me to do so. But I don’t twitter or tumble or anything else. Because I haven’t time mostly. I think if I had the time I would write more, and be more apt to promote my writing. But I’ve got the buttons there for anyone who would want to use them.

  4. Does that mean there are already six Fast and Furiouses? I am so out of touch. Though I’m sad that someone is gone who was here earlier 😦

    My facebook page is all about the biz. Never post on the personal page, though friends have put pictures of my kiddos up which I don’t mind. I enjoy seeing what my friends (in the real sense, not fb sense so much) are up to, but don’t play the game myself. I understand that Pinterest, twitter, etc are the places to be these days, but I can’t bring myself to care enough. Enough on my plate with day-to-day real life responsibilities. Speaking of social media, how goes it with the online marketing?

    • I understand the time crunch, Liz, and real life trumps the social media campus, so to speak. Every darn time.

      I have yet to get a job from the online campaign, though I have bid for some. Thank you for asking. :-0

  5. Paul looks like a mannequin there; it’s eerie. And to think Shatner is more than twice Paul’s age when he passed. We should all be so lucky and mobile and relevant-ish at age 83. Seriously, I’m not convinced there are even 85 million people alive. That’s too many. They must mostly be in India. It’s super crowded there.
