Yes, Najib is most popular
That's amazing. If you are not very popular, you won't be able to hit that figure in a year.
However, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak's FB friends have exceeded the one million mark yesterday. Congratulations.
I personally don't think other prime ministers or any other leaders in the region have achieved such a 'popularity level'.
And what does it show? In my opinion, people are supporting him not for his position as a leader but for his approach, policy and mediocrity. His moderate politic also contributes much in shaping up his image, not only as a leader but as a mentor to many.
In his latest entry in Facebook, Najib said: "I am deeply touched to know my Facebook friends have exceeded a million people. Thank you. I will continue to interact with my loyal online friends. Thank you for your support!".
The achievement by Najib is something to be proud of in light of his efforts to get closer to the people at the grassroots level by using technological advances in keeping with the times.
Recently, the prime minister announced that he would host high tea for his millionth Facebook friend and 500,000th Twitter follower.
Keep it up, Mr PM!
