  • If there's one thing 2020 has proven true it's that you cannot deny the power of social media. We've relied heavily on it this year to keep us connected to our families and updated on the latest news about COVID-19.

    The year gave birth to even more digital stars as well, with local celebrities moving their presence online because of cancelled physical events and activities.

    With this comes Forbes Asia's inaugural 100 Digital Stars, which highlights 100 singers, bands, and film and TV stars across the Asia-Pacific region.

    Those on the list are celebrities who use social media, not only to connect with fans and promote their projects, but also to raise awareness about important social issues.

    Many of the celebrities on the list have also used their social media presence for worthy causes like disaster response and COVID-19 relief operations.

    The Filipinos on the list were dominated by women who have used their influence to inspire optimism—two of them are moms.

    The mom of two has not appeared on screen since 2019, but she has remained incredibly busy on social media, advocating for the wellness of moms during the pandemic and preparing delicious meals for frontliners.

    She even sends delicious breakfast meals to neighboring baranggays because why not.

    She also donates breast milk to babies in need.

    She has, as of writing, 10 million followers on Instagram and more than 20 million followers on Facebook.

    The first-time mom is one of the country's most popular Instagram celebrities with 16 million followers.


    Her Instagram feed has everything from her work with Unicef to her major endorsements and her life in Australia with her daughter and her husband.

    The other Filipinos on the list include Kim Chiu, Anne Curtis, Angel Locsin, Vice Ganda, Kathryn Bernardo, and Sarah Geronimo.
