Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s Facebook page has been judged the most popular among all other chief ministers in the country. In the ranking released by the social networking platform, Adityanath’s page beats those of Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and his Gujarat counterpart Vijay Rupani to emerge as the most popular.
Though chief ministers like Vasundhara Raje and Arvind Kejriwal have more followers, Adityanath emerged on top as he had more ‘meaningful social interactions’ during the past year. Facebook released these rating in January 2018.
“We recently released the data of top-ranked Facebook pages of government bodies, ministries and political parties in India. The data looks at the popularity of these accounts during the period of January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017, and is based on the interactions on the platform like shares and comments,” a communication sent to the Uttar Pradesh government by Facebook read.
“You will be glad to know that Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath’s Facebook page is at first position in the Indian Chief Minister category,” it added. Adityanath’s Facebook page has over five million followers.
