The announcement that Emma Watson had been appointed a celebrity Goodwill Ambassador was so popular that it crashed the UN website.
On Monday, the 24-year-old British actor told fans that she would be working with the United Nations to advocate for gender equality and women's rights.
Watson made the announcement to her 25 million Facebook fans...
...and her 13 million Twitter followers.
Soon after she made the announcement, the UN Women website received so much traffic that it temporarily shut down. The UN Women Twitter account tweeted:
Watson will be working on the "empowerment of young women and will serve as an advocate for UN Women's HeForShe campaign", which enlists men and boys to stand up for gender equality.
