Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has posted a thread on his Facebook just now thanking netizens for their ‘positive’ response to his venture into social media.
Since his Facebook was set up on Saturday, it has received more than ‘30,000’ likes and more than 3,000 comments so far.
“I am overwhelmed by your response to my FB page. I have read so many comments from Singaporeans here and abroad, and from many foreign well-wishers. You have written in different languages and on many issues. Quite a few have penned thoughtful pieces, and have clearly put in much time and effort,” he wrote.

Thanking netizens for their ‘enthusiastic support and contributions’, PM Lee reiterated that he took their views seriously:
“There are just too many for me to address individually. But I take your views very seriously, and have sent some of your feedback to the ministries to consider.”
He ended by appealing for patience from netizens to tackle some teething problems plaguing the nation:
“Your comments cover many issues of public concern, such as public transport, housing and cost of living. These are complex, long-term problems. My government is working hard on them. I ask for your patience and support to deal with them together, as one nation.”
