Did you ever connect with and chat with anyone (or even think you did) famous on-line?

I once stumbled into a MS chat room and spoke with a person who said (and I believed - still do, or at least hope it was her) that she was Annette. It was a nice conversation.

Not exactly, but I used to speak to some Greek rapper. I donít know whether he was well known in Greece, but I did hear his music. I donít remember his name. I had a friend who believed that he used to speak to a former Victoriaís Secret model online and she supposedly had a crush on him.

Catfishing was prevalent way before AOL and was common in the days of analog modems connected to BBSs and services like Qlink, prodigy and others. I seriously doubt you were talking to Annette Funicello and more likely a catfish.

AOL and Prodigy, from my memory, used to 'host' chats with celebs. I was in on one with Brannon Braga back in the ST:TNG days..

Now, a celebrity just 'hanging out' in one of the chat rooms? Yeah, I'd be suspect of that.

Yes, I remember those chats (but didnít count them for the purposes of this thread). Nowadays, we have Instagram Live where you can at least view live video of your favorite celebrities while you send them questions and comments that get ignored. Isnít technology great?
