Posted by Vaibhav Kalamdani on December 23, 2013

Do you dream of making your place the best in the world to live in? What can you do to make this dream come true? Not everyone can be the President, Prime Minister or the Ruler of any place. So as a leader, how do you ensure you give all the citizens an opportunity to share their ideas with you? The answer is turn to social media!

Recently, HH Sheikh Mohammed, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai called for every man, woman and child to join the biggest ever national brainstorming session in order to promote fresh thinking and innovation in generating ideas for developing the sectors within UAE. Here are his official tweets:

This is not the first time that HH Sheikh Mohammed used social media for citizen engagement. He regularly engages the citizens for UAE’s development projects with the help of social media.

Social media, if used effectively, can be of great help. It can help unite the citizens, foster growth and bring harmony within the community if it is controlled well by the leader. Not only personalities, but also brands can play a key role in getting citizens together by working closely with the government.
