The US Embassy in Dhaka launched a series of Facebook chats on Tuesday about the US elections as part of its Road to the White House initiative, reports the UNB.
"We are delighted to educate our nearly three million Facebook fans and the Bangladeshi media about the US election process," said US Ambassador in Dhaka Marcia Stephens Bloom Bernicat.
“Starting on May 10 and running through the presidential inauguration in January 2017, we will host a US expert each month to conduct a one-hour Facebook chat on a specific election-related topic,” she added.
This is the first time a US Embassy will conduct live chats on the US polls via a Facebook page.
