MUMBAI: Bollywood super star Amitabh Bachchan, who joined Facebook on August 21 last year, has notched up a follower base of over five million within a year.
“Facebook needs no introduction and I feel that my official facebook fan page was long overdue. Facebook is a powerful tool that helps bring people together and allows us to embrace being a part of a larger community,’’ the Big B had said last year while launching his Facebook page to keep his fans informed about his upcoming films and other engagements and sharing his photos, some very rare.
Pleased with winning such a big fan base on facebook in a year, Amitabh Bachchan has posted on his facebook page, “THANK YOU ALL … went beyond 5 million !! Just love the interest that gets created when you realize that you and all the well wishers, still gather around ..’’
In fact, the super star’s facebook page had received about 800,000 likes on its very first day.
Pretty adept at using the social media to interact with his fans, Amitabh has been regularly blogging and tweeting. The 70-year-old megastar has millions of followers on twitter and his blog as well.
