Sarawak state government is getting more social. It was not too long ago that the Chief Minister told media he wouldn’t need a blog. Why would he need it?

After all he got loss-making recently rebranded New Sarawak Tribune that guarantee front page appearance on every other day and all the pro-BN mainstream media.

Facebook and Twitter said the Information Minister is ‘oh not so East’ – and for people who don’t have job.

Well, that was then. Now Taib wants Sarawak state government to be on Youtube!

The Sarawak Government official Youtube channel was created on Oct 27, and currently featuring 12 videos about state government policies on logging to Taib’s importance of leadership in developing Sarawak.

Not surprising commenting is disallowed in the state government Youtube channel – unlike popular President Barack Obama White House channel. Here is a video from the channel.
