Blake Shelton‟s twitter account is used by himself and also a few others that help promote Blake Shelton. You can see that by the different voices and personas that are displayed in each tweet. Blake Shelton is known on twitter for showing his personality. Not only does he use twitter to give fans updates and keep in contact with them but he also tweets random and hilarious things.
Much like Blake‟s Twitter page his Facebook page is both used by himself and his Team. The difference between these two forms of social media is that you can see that they use the Facebook page for more promotional topics and twitter for more of a social interaction with fans. Also much like twitter Blake doesn‟t hide his personality.

Blake Shelton‟s Official Website showcases everything. Not only do they have a biography of Blake Shelton but they play his singles, have new videos posted, tour dates, show his recent tweets and even sell merchandise.
http://www.cmaworld.com/ This site leads you to the country music association website which showcases all country music artists tours, shows and awards. Blake Shelton is apart of the CMA world along with his wife, Zac Brown Band, Taylor Swift, Luke Bryan, Tim McGraw and many more. This community of singers are very close and even gather together once a year at the CMA festival which is a weekend of fun and musical entertainment. This allows for the artists to gather in appreciation for their musical talents and successes as well as see some familiar faces to enjoy their company.
In 2011 Blake Shelton joined Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera on a reality music TV show called The Voice They are judges looking for new talent. Blake has been on the show for 5 seasons and a 6th season is beginning on February 24th with Shakira and Usher. He has won the voice three times (Seasons 2,3 & 4)
Blake Shelton has created his own audience through the world of Country Music. Today the genre is beginning to gain more popularity and Blake Shelton is one of the many names that have helped country rise in audience numbers. Due to his witty and charming personality and his soothing country voice, Blake has a large audience. He not only created an audience with his music but also with his TV personality on The Voice. If you look at his twitter page he is very happy with his life and the career her has. Those who do not want to be a fan he could care less about that, in contrast those who are actively involved with his career and even smaller fans he is very loving and engages with the fans often through twitter and facebook.
Blake Shelton uses online social media sites to keep in contact with his fans and to inform them of upcoming events and dates. He also likes to show his personality through social media, which fans love. As a fan of Blake Shelton I thoroughly enjoy his sometime inappropriate but hilarious tweets. It gives fans and his audience an opportunity to feel like they know him more personally rather than just an artist whose music they enjoy.
Blake engages in many forms of social media in order to connect with his fans. He tweets about random thoughts as well as promoting his music. He also will have days where he retweets and responds to some of their questions. One problem that Blake does is he responds negatively to some criticisms over twitter in an unprofessional manner, in my opinion. He also is very vocal about drinking, which in some people‟s eyes could be a bad thing but also that is his personality. He jokes about being drunk and drinking a lot, but that‟s the persona he has built for himself.
I think with the help of the voice Blake is very effective with both online and physical spaces. On his hit reality TV show he is able to connect with other singers as well as fans of the show and with his music he has another fan base that he continues to engage with through performances, tours and award shows. Also if you look on Blake‟s official website they have a page that is all about Meet & Greet, which gives fans the opportunity to physically be around Blake Shelton. Most artists do engage physically with their fans this way so I believe it is effective. The difference that separates artists is how they interact online, where Blake Shelton has been very effective.
Twitter, Facebook and Youtube are the best ways that Blake Shelton engages with his audience. He consistently is posting updates about his TV show, tour dates and even more personal comments. Most recently is The Voice season 6 premier but upcoming he has a big festival in Canada called Boots & Hearts as well as the CMA festival which if you‟re keeping track of his social media, he will be posting lots of updates about those upcoming events. Also he tweets live during The Voice shows to keep in contact with fans and to help his artists be successful in the show.
