Fansites

Active: 2008-Present

Early in the promotion of "The Fame", fansites appeared in various languages. According to Troy Carter, sites such as Gaga Daily, Gaga News and Lady-gaga.net, in total there were about 30 of these around the world, in a number of languages. He considered these sites the core of the Lady Gaga empire. His staff communicated daily with the fans that ran them, sending out early warnings about tour dates and helping to dispel internet rumours. Gaga occasionally visited the sites' messageboards to interact with users. "It's almost like having an underground network," Carter says. "There may come a day when you don't have the cover of Vanity Fair, or you may not be able to get on that big TV show. But it's important that you have that direct communication with that audience so they still know what you're doing."

Instagram

iTunes Ping

Soon after Apple started its music-centric social network Ping last year, Steve Jobs reached out to Lady Gaga and her business manager, Troy Carter, for feedback.

At the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., Lady Gaga peppered Mr. Jobs, Apple’s chief executive, with questions about Ping’s design and how it would work with other social networks. The pop star and Mr. Carter voiced concerns over the lack of integration with Facebook, but they left respecting Mr. Jobs’s overall vision.
