Why is this random guy all over your Facebook page?

Why is this random guy all over your Facebook page?

If your friends share a lot of videos on your Facebook news feed, you might have seen one name popping up over and over. His name is James Ellis and no one can explain why he's suddenly so popular.

Ellis is a fitness model, actor, and generally very in shape person. According to his Facebook page, he's 5-foot-11, weighs 185 pounds, enjoys outdoor sports, and is a “follower of JESUS CHRIST.” He won the World Beauty Fitness & Fashion show in 2011 and really likes Greek yogurt.

What that doesn't tell us is why he somehow has 1.4 million Facebook followers. The videos he shares get a lot of views and comments, but he doesn't actually make the videos. He just re-posts ones he finds online.

So the fame remains a mystery for now.

I guess it goes to show that Facebook really is a good way to market yourself or your business. Learn how to make a free Facebook page and then follow these basic rules for marketing.

It also proves that a big part of becoming famous is luck and being in the right place at the right time to catch the spotlight. Unfortunately, I can't help you with that one.
