The Harry Potter fandom started long before social media was even an idea. Fans from all over the world grew up with this series, laughing, loving, losing and fighting alongside their favorite characters.
Fans cried when Dumbledore, Sirius or Fred died, they felt joy at the opening of the year banquet or at a Quidditch victory. Most fans like to share their thoughts, discuss the books and re-write chapters of their favorite books. We all share the need to be connected no matter our age, gender or location. With Facebook and other social media sharing the love for JK Rowling’s fantasy world is made easier.
Harry Potter Fandom
The connection of fans with the story of Harry Potter lasts long after the final book was released and the last movie was shot. On Facebook pages dedicated to the series, the fandom has the opportunity of re-enter the world that they so dearly loved, to see their favorite characters or quotes, but most importantly to meet new people who are just as passionate as they are. Pages such as “Harry Potter” (with over 60 million likes) , “Confessions of a Hogwarts Student” (with over 70 thousand likes), “Why so Sirius?” (with over 5,ooo Sirius Black likes) and many others more have united the Harry Potter fandom.
The pages are very active. The administrators of the pages constantly post photos – fan art mostly- depicting the most loved scenes, the scenes that never found their way on the big screens or just favorite moments. Pages hold contests for their fans, respecting the tradition of the House Competition. The fandom members play games in order to gather the points needed to win the House Cup and to show off their extensive knowledge of the series.
The Harry Potter fandom stands proof of the fact that people love to be connected with others, especially with those they have something in common. For some, the pages have become a way to escape their daily problems, for some it’s just a way to kill some time – but whatever their reasons, the Harry Potter fandom is growing everyday, and the people enjoy finding someone who truly understands their passion.
