Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in a video post on Sunday thanked people who follow him on social media for their support.

In the three-and-a-half-minute long video uploaded earlier, Mr Lee noted that it had been two years since he joined Facebook and Twitter, and a year since he began using Instagram.

"It's been a fun journey sharing with you, things I have been doing, people I've met, places I've been, and once in awhile, pictures I've taken," he said. "Thank you very much for reading my posts, commenting on them, liking them, sharing them with your friends. I appreciate it a lot. We hope you will continue to read and go on a journey with us together."

Highlights of Mr Lee's posts include a selfie he had taken with Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak. But aside from trying out self-portraits taken with his iPhone, Mr Lee noted that he had used social media to post "important messages", such as one that urged Singaporeans to stay calm after the riot in Little India last December and how he shared his condolences on the missing Malaysian airliner MH370 via Facebook.

He had also posted photos of "many special moments", like one when he witnessed his father, former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew, receive a honorary degree from the National University of Singapore.

Mr Lee has about 322,000 "likes" on Facebook, and 68,000 followers on Twitter. He has also garnered about 31,000 followers on Instagram, where he has 250 posts to date.
