Today, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi joined the social networking site Instagram.
Instagram is basically viewed as a hub for aspiring photographers where a lot of Bollywood stars connect with their fans through the photos they post of their everyday life.
Modi becomes the first Prime Minister of India to be a part of Instagram.
Here’s how Prime Minister Narendra Modi sent in a tweet on Twitter letting the world know that he’s joined Instagram:-
Hello World! Great being on Instagram. My first photo…this one from the ASEAN Summit. @ Nay Pyi Taw,… http://t.co/3JOFpddt5R

Narendra Modi’s arrival on Instagram is another example of his regular stress to interact with the public on social media. We’ll say it’s a brilliant move considering not a lot of politicians are actually a part of Instagram. Following the footsteps of Modi, a lot of politicians especially from the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) will become a part of Instagram as Modi has always been quite vocal on connecting to public through social media.
Here’s the first photo that India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi posted on Instagram:-

It’s time that politicians start exploring other available options on social media as well. Facebook and Twitter are fine; Instagram might just let them reach a different audience that’s still left unexplored.
