Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister and All India Trinamool Congress Chairperson, Mamata Banerjee has crossed a new milestone on social media. Her Facebook profile recently crossed 2 million ‘likes’.
In the course of her formidable presence on Facebook, she has achieved significant firsts like being the first politician in India to have a 360-degree video of her rally up on her page. Her ‘Facebook Q&A’ generated an overwhelming response from the audience. Both of these happened last April, as part of the campaign for the Assembly elections.
Mamata Banerjee has been one of the pioneering politicians in India in terms of using the power of social media to communicate her and her Government’s and party’s views to the people. She has a strong presence on Twitter too.
