Facebook Talks Live lets voters question top poll contenders

Even as the country gears up to elect the 16th Lok Sabha soon, Facebook has joined hands with newslaundry.com and NDTV to present a social media platform to Facebook users to pose pertinent questions to leading politicians and top poll contenders such as Narendra Modi, Arvind Kejriwal, Mamata Banerjee, Akhilesh Yadav and Lalu Prasad Yadav, among others.

Called FacebookTalks Live, the multi-platform, multi-screen initiative will see well-known journalist and Editor-in-Chief of newslaundry.com, Madhu Trehan, ask the viewers’ questions on FBtalkslive from March 3 to 8 between 8 p and 9 pm. The initiative will be telecast live on NDTV and streamed live on the Facebook platform.

In a statement issued, Ankhi Das, Public Policy Director – India & South Asia, Facebook said, “Social engagement is at the core of our platform. In politics and elections, it is also key to influencing voting behaviours and organising opinion. In this election season, we are bringing Facebook Talks Live with key 2014 national and regional leaders.”

The first session on March 3 will feature BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
