With Facebook as the main social media platform for Malaysians, assume every fans are Malaysians with an average of 200 friends on their FB network, if EVERY fans share the post from Bersih Facebook Page, imagine how many other people would further know about it & share it out.

Of course, the numbers above would most likely increase over time and with the power of Social Media, it would go on and on for quite sometime with quite a big multiplier factor. Again, there’re more stuffs which aren’t easy to track like the conversations on Facebook, the comments & likes on such conversations & the amount of shares – media(picture/video) on Facebook itself.

Truth has been told by many first hand participants who walked for themselves and not for any political parties, now all of these have to be shared to more people out there. Think hard & make the efforts of 50k Malaysians who took it down the streets worth it. Spread the pictures, most importantly the videos out.

Previously, someone asked, will all these #BersihStories last till the the 13th General Elections of Malaysia. Then came another question, how many of you who supported Bersih 2.0 rally are in fact a registered voter?

After viewing the pictures and watching the videos, i really do believe that there’s hope in Malaysia. I hope you feel so too.

Malaysia Boleh!
