Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak now has more than 100,000 Facebook fans. As of 5.25pm yesterday, Najib, who became a Facebook member in mid-October, had accumulated 101,337 fans.
"Dear friends, as of today (Friday), and within a short period, more than 100,000 of you have joined me on this page.
"I am delighted and moved by this response, and by the interest you continue to show in my posts through leaving comments.
"Thank you all for becoming fans and for helping to make this page an engaging forum for discussion. Let's continue this upward momentum!" he said in a brief remark left on the page.
Like millions of people around the world, Najib joined the social networking website to reach out to the masses, and especially Malaysians, hoping to clip the political divide between the old and young generations.
Apart from the social networking portal, the prime minister also actively tweets on another social networking portal, Twitter.
