Is this actually roger federer or just some fan posing as him?

Edit: He posted a video confirming that it is actually him.

Facebook is awful.

Facebook is GREAT. How exactly it's "awful" makes no sense to me. It's a social networking program that excels at just that... social networking. I know what all my friends are up to by the minute and an overview of what's going on with everyone simultaneously. Maybe if you were at university you'd think otherwise.

Now people spending too much time on it is something altogether. But for those of us who don't, it's a great tool.

And no of course it's not him. If you read the info tab you'd know that. The information is written about Roger... not by him.

Definitely not him. There's about 3 photos in that page and all of them are public photos. Anybody who plays facebook should know what facebook is about. It's about sharing photos with your friends, and keep in touch with them.

I think it's Mirka or someone he hired to pretend to be him. I don't think he has that much time to respond to people on facebook.

I'm a student, I've had a profile for 4 years now and I think Facebook is overrated and a piece of junk.

Yay, Facebook sounds like the new Myspace (except now Myspace verifies 'celebrity' pages and puts them on a list).

Yes,people do take it seriously..even on RF.com! That was really beyond me,because Roger always lets his fans know whats up with him on his official site.

Dear Fans

My fan community on facebook is steadily growing - a great thing to see! Along with my website, my facebook account is the perfect place to exchange all kinds of information, pictures, videos, links, etc. I'm already looking forward to seeing you all there, just follow the link below to access my page.

Kind regards
Roger

Ahem. So this is really Roger on facebook.. or someone with approval of Federer to write on his behalf...

Wow that is a fan page, meaning that it was either created by a fan or his publicist, or his publicist's assistant. Use your common sense.

DarthFed
05-15-2009, 10:03 AM
his publicist most likely, they have them for many top players, instead of being their friend you become a fan...so far im a fan of Fed,Nadal,Gulbis,Nole,Nishikori,Gasquet, and Roddick

I have my doubts about that one. He mentions his Facebook page on the front of his official website, but there is no mention of his twitter page.



Edit: Nevermind, it's gone now. Guess it was fake.

He said he wanted to "clear the air" about whether
his fan page was legitimate or not.

Do you think he actually saw this poll?!

Roger it's freakin' sweet that you would reach your fans in a modern way through a social networking site!

Please give that punk Novak the thrashing he deserves for thinking he can sneak in and usurp the Roland Garros crown!

awwww...How sweet is Rogi..
Well he certainly found a way of keeping in touch with fans since there were many who wanted him to write a blog . (must say though his Tokyo blogs were hilarious and very well written)
I guess this is a great way of keeping his fans updated and he or someone from his team can put up the updates anytime from their mobiles.Great stuff. :D
Love the video too.The smile makes me melt :oops:

It's standard if you look at all the other famous people on facebook. Usually just copy/paste from wikipedia or something.

jms007
05-26-2009, 11:51 AM
Yeah, I use it. What do you mean everybody's? Celebrities, maybe. But usually those pages are being run by someone else. This one is more like actual personal page, since Fed writes and updates it himself. It's only a "fan page" because the regular pages have a limit on how many friends you can add.

Federer is not alone in the room! He used a camera to the record the video. Yeah that's really fishy stuff there.

I'm aware...but i just thought it was kind of odd since it's a more personal page than the standard celeb fan pages on Facebook.

I think he didn't create the page himself. Someone else probably filled out the info. Maybe he'll change it in the future.
