Standing side-by-side with Mark Zuckerberg, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a rock star appearance at Facebook on Sunday, advocating for the political power of social media.

“To leaders all over the world; you are not going to gain by running away from social media,” said the tech-savvy premier during a town hall-style question and answer session.

“The strength of social media today is that it can tell governments where they are going wrong and give them an opportunity to do a course correction.” More info
