Punjab government is all set to foray into the world of social media as part of its efforts to disseminate information about its policies and initiatives "beyond state boundaries".

A spokesman on Monday said the state information and public relations department has decided to mark its presence in the cyber world by creating official accounts of Punjab government on Facebook, Twitter, WordPress and YouTube.

In a statement issued here the spokesperson said the state government is focusing on real-time dissemination of government policies, programmes and initiatives beyond state boundaries.

"Social media will enhance audience reach, improve accessibility of government communication for NRIs and increase the speed of public feedback and input," he said.

It will also help the state government to reach a target audience on particular issues, especially in the case of any emergency or natural calamity, he added.
