From Facebook to Twitter, social media sites have become the new fan clubs, thrusting us into a world in which 18-year-old tween sensation Justin Bieber has more followers than our President- by 8 million! Today, up-and-coming young models like Kate Upton, have their web-savvy skills and digital popularity to thank for their skyrocket to fame.
