"How's it going? This is James Franco," he says in a videotaped message posted on Facebook on February 18. "Just saying that this is the authentic Facebook and Twitter and every other page... All those other ones are impostors."
Franco, who had more than 120,000 followers on both sites as of press time, adds, "I've decided to go onto the Web, and this is the real thing. So, welcome. Don't listen to those other pages."
The Oscar host/nominee hasn't posted too many messages thus far, but he has shared quite a few images, including arty self-portraits, a cartoon sketch of an actor at an audition, and several photographs. Among them: Julia Roberts in "Steel Magnolias"; a plane passenger holding a sign urging viewers to join the Mile High Club; and, er, an unflushed toilet.
Will you follow the all-over actor on Facebook and Twitter?
