The man behind Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg puts forth Facebook’s vision for the coming years and notably mentions PM Modi in his post.

Talking about people-government relationship beyond vote counts, Zuckerberg said,

“Beyond voting, the greatest opportunity is helping people stay engaged with the issues that matter to them every day, not just every few years at the ballot box. We can help establish direct dialogue and accountability between people and our elected leaders. In India, Prime Minister Modi has asked his ministers to share their meetings and information on Facebook so they can hear direct feedback from citizens.”

Pointing out Facebook’s developments, he also mention that entire villages in Kenya are using WhatsApp to communicate with their representatives.

Elaborating how Facebook has been a part of voting campaigns and behind victories, he said,

“ In recent campaigns around the world — from India and Indonesia across Europe to the United States — we’ve seen the candidate with the largest and most engaged following on Facebook usually wins. Just as TV became the primary medium for civic communication in the 1960s, social media is becoming this in the 21st century,”
