Reading Time: 1 minute

SBY TwitterIndonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono made it to a celebrity on Twitter where he has gained nearly 2.7 million followers as of July 6 for his account @SBYudhoyono, which was heavily used during the recent forest fires in Sumatra that caused a smog disaster in the region.

Yudhoyono has now also signed for a Facebook account as well as accounts on YouTube and Google+, Indonesian magazine Techno Kompas reported. However, it is worth noting that this has also led to the creation of a number of mock accounts by anonymous people.

Opened in May 22, the Facebook page posts have gained more than 156,000 likes so far, and this number is highly likely to grow with the country’s  64 million monthly active Facebook users. The page is said to be managed by the president himself and his internal staff.

Indonesia also has 29 million Twitter users, and the capital Jakarta has been rated the “Twitter capital of the world”.

The president’s Google Plus account has more than 500 circles so far, but his YouTube presence just 70 subscribers.
