Know secrets of social media success with Narendra Modi

|

New Delhi, July 28: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi revealed the secrets of social media success. The CM, during an interview with ANI news, said that social media has become the most "powerful channel" of communication.

Modi was asked to explain the importance of social media during BJP's campaigning ahead of 2014 Lok Sabha elections. Answering to the query, Modi said, "No single individual or organization enjoys a monopoly on possession and dissemination of knowledge and information. It is imperative to listen and learn as much as pronounce, in this Digital age."

"Thus it becomes requisite for every Indian Leader to be able to have a two-way communication with the people, especially our Youth. Social Media to me is the most powerful channel for accomplishing this," added the Gujarat CM.

Praising the youth of the country, Modi said, "I was pleasantly surprised over the seriousness with which Youth responded to my request through Social Media for ideas and suggestions."

The CM, who recently has been elevated as the chief of BJP election campaign committee, also informed about few instances where he indeed has experienced the power of social media.

Modi said, "To me it is not just about Twitter and Facebook. For instance, I am amazed at how YouTube as a medium of video sharing has made e-Learning accessible to so many people."

Continuing his statement, Modi added, "...when I look at an application like WhatsApp and how simple it is to use, one begins to appreciate the power of this medium. Often the first reports when a disaster strikes or an unfortunate incident happens, are received via one of these Social Media channels."

The CM also mentioned the social media's role during the crisis of Uttarakhand flood. Modi was delighted to explain social media's role "in bringing home news of the missing to their loved ones."

Modi, who is known as an active politician using social media, earlier had asked BJP parliamentary board members to engage with the young crowd of the country through social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and many more.

The Gujarat CM, who always expresses his opinions, beliefs through writing blogs, posts, tweets, has 1,981,569 followers on Twitter and 2,590,398 fan followers on Facebook till Sunday, July 28.
