The Union Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has launched a mobile app that integrates various social media handles of over 170 Indian missions on a common platform.
The application will help to further expand digital presence of MEA and serve as a common platform to further its public outreach.
- The application has been developed by social media giant Facebook for free.
- It will help people connect with Indian missions abroad and the MEA through a range of social media platforms without having to access individual websites.
- The MEA uses Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Gplus, Youtube, Soundcloud, Flickr to reach out to people as part of its social media engagement.
- People through the app can just tap on the map of the country to get access to all social media platforms of the mission rather than searching for websites, Facebook pages and twitter handle of individual missions.
