ISLAMABAD—Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) has launched its Facebook page and Twitter account, an official announcement from the journalists’ representative organization said.
“We are pleased to announce the launching of our two social media tools that will help us to reach out nationally and also at the global level,” PFUJ President Shahzada Zulfiqar and Secretary-General Nasir Zaidi said.
“This was a much-awaited action which we have finally taken and it will help us to expand our reach.”
Zulfiqar and Zaidi said that the launching of these two social media tools coincides with PFUJ’s book on 70 years of the union’s struggle for freedom of expression and the economic rights of media workers. The book titled, “From retrenchment to lashes” is likely to be launched within a week.
The PFUJ said its official Facebook and Twitter accounts are: https://www.facebook.com/officialpfuj
The union leaders have asked the members across the country to visit these accounts and re-tweet the PFUJ messages and other material.
The two leaders said that the PFUJ was also working on developing its website and called upon the affiliated unions to submit their suggestions.
“These social media tools are the need of the hour and regrettably due to many constraints in the past we could not devote our full attention to this side,” the joint statement said. “We are hopeful that with these social media platforms our presence will be felt more and our voice would reach more people.”
