“Social media is not just a tool that allows fans to communicate. It is an environment within which some fan communities live,” says Dr. Mark Duffett in the study. “What people do together helps build their sense of communal identity.”

While some artists get a lot of hate, others get almost nothing but love. At the top of the positive heap is Harry Styles, with Camila Cabello and Lady Gaga close behind.
