Shahbaz Sharif Debuts Social Media Career

Didn’t we tell you that political parties will start taking the social media seriously, one might argue that they were already into it but the importance and weight for social media after PTI’s Jalsa in Lahore has been like never before.

Keeping in line with the need of the time, Shahbaz Sharif, Chief Minister of Punjab and top leader of PML(N), has launched his official Facebook page himself in an event that was pictured and uploaded on the same page.

Along with Facebook, CM Punjab revisited his strategy for Twitter and Pring, a mobile social network. Fresh accounts, with newly established policy, were created to reach the audience on both the networks with maximum influence.

Update: As known to many Mr. Shahbaz was already using twitter, with plenty of following, hence he decided to go with old twitter account instead of using new ID with fresh start.

Clearly, the leadership is planning from the core to get the internet crowd moving with their political motives in coming months. They are hiring specialized individuals for the purpose who will manage their online identity with a positive approach.

Here are Mr. Sharif’s official pages:




Having said all this, political leaders should keep this in mind that online presence can fire back if you don’t meet the expectations. If not handled, or say tackled well then negative feedback can result into a disaster for the celebrities.

So be sure that you also perform on the ground to get the real buzz from social media.

  • All in all, it all comes to positive changes in Pakistan. At least they are trying to get closer to people. And yeah they can never beat imran khan in popularity.

  • very niceeee
    you can check the indian politicians most of them are doing the same thing, here one more thing is that pakistani showbiz should do like same you can see that all the bollywood stars not announce any thing through any media but just through their twitter profile…
    social media has power

  • Betterlate than never…more needs to be done to fight the perception being spun by PTI

  • So finally there is an unbiased way of knowing what the opposition is doing as otherwise media continues to play its negative role by trying to be neutral which has only resulted in the hird force getting stronger.

    Thank God there is alternative
