For an A-list star, Chris Evans is pretty active on social media, and fans thank him for it. The actor is in some of the biggest movies of his era and he has seen the full range of celebrity experiences from intense adoration to heavy controversy. Through it all, he has not stopped hopping online to share his personal life and chat with fans from time to time.
Evans is pretty active on both Instagram and Twitter, though he clearly goes through phases with the apps like anyone else. He posts photos of his dog, Dodger, selfies with his famous friends and idle commentary on his day-to-day life including sports, entertainment and politics. The actor seems to make all of these posts himself with no team of publicists to help, and he has definitely cultivated a very genuine persona that fans love. In fact, fans are sometimes protective of Evans, fearful that a few bad apples will scare the star off of social media like so many others in his industry.

Die-hard fans have always circled around Evans' social media presence, although he really drew in the followers when he and other Avengers stars began posting behind-the-scenes snapshots online. Evans, Mark Ruffalo and a select few others shared selfies, videos and other glimpses with Marvel fans starting around 2018, with the release of Avengers: Infinity War.
Evans is also open about his family life, posting frequent tributes to his parents and siblings, and pet-lovers cannot get enough of his dog, Dodger. All in all, Evan's social media output has been pretty wholesome with just a few exceptions. Here is a look at some of his biggest hits.
