Nevis Premier – Joseph Parry
June 11, 2009
The Hon. Joseph Parry has incorporated one of the most popular social media tools into the promotion of the island and the Nevis Reformation Party (NRP) led Nevis Island Administration’s projects and programs with the establishment of a Facebook page.
The account was set up as a means of providing a forum for discussions, continued news and information about the Nevis Government.
The Nevis Premier’s Facebook page is regularly updated and accessible to Internet users throughout the Diaspora. Through this form of social media, anyone can sign up to follow the progress of the Nevis Island Government, reply directly to posts, tag posts as favorites or reference the news and information provided for their own use. A member would simply type in: Hon. Joseph Parry in the search box and then the individual would be directed to the fan page.
Facebook has been growing worldwide and becoming popular with people who want to connect with family, friends and schoolmates. Journalists also use the popular medium as a primary source of information.
With internet use growing in popularity among persons of all age groups, it was deemed important that the NRP led Administration utilize this affordable and effective communications tool to connect directly with Nevisians at home and abroad.
Since Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected, becoming a part of this growing trend is surely a move in the right direction.
