Indonesian President Urges South East Asian Nations to Use Twitter, Facebook and Blog

Speaking to Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) foreign ministers on the island of Bali, Yudhoyono expressed support for the establishment of an ASEAN blogger community, reports AFP.

“Being the world’s second largest Facebook nation, and third largest for Twitter, Indonesia knows the value of social media”, said President Yudhoyono. He also urges other South East Asian Nations to maximize the use of social network.

“For the first time, and in contrast to just four decades ago, we are facing a reality where the frequency and depth of contacts between our citizens – through cable television, email, Twitter, Facebook – far exceed the formal contacts between government officials,” he said. “ASEAN must “get into the act” and be “creative and open-minded in harnessing the power of technology to promote people-to-people contact”.

He has also given the emphasis on establishing an online blogger community across South East Asian Nations.“The establishment of an ASEAN blogger community is one innovative idea, and more should follow,” Yudhoyono said.

ASEAN, with nearly 600 million people, groups Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

The more developed member-states such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand have witnessed explosive growth in the use of social networking and microblogging sites even if overall Internet penetration remains low.
