Kalam's Facebook page crosses million followers

Within a few months of debuting on the social networking website, former President Dr A P J Abdul Kalam's Facebook page is now followed by more than a million people all over the world.

Ever since it was launched in February, 81-year-old Kalam has been regularly posting his thoughts, ideas, travel experiences and photographs on the official page at www.facebook.com/OfficialKalam.

"Thank you friends... we are now one million strong community...lets keep spreading great ideas, dreams and actions," India's 'Missile Man' wrote in his last post today.

As part of his mission to make India a developed nation before 2020, he has been posting new ideas for the youth of the nation to get inspired, connect and evolve.

"I would like to ask all of you to give one smile to someone everyday. In that way, we can generate one million smiles in the nation every day. Also appreciate someone else for his or her goodness from today onwards," Kalam said in a message.

On Facebook, the Bharat Ratna awardee has been sharing unique moments of his life, his interaction with people and achievers, success stories and celebrating the success of fellow Indians who contribute to the development of the nation.

To connect with the youth, Kalam maintains a personal website, shares videos on YouTube and writes blogs.

Now he is heading the Kalam Foundation which is working for development and reforming education in the nation.
