There’s A New Vlogger In Town.. And He’s Also The President!

Do you like watching vlogs on YouTube? Which of the many Indonesian vlogger channels do you subscribe to? Well here’s a new one to subscribe to, that is Mr. Jokowi! Yes, you read it right, our very own president has officially created and launched his own vlog!

He even uploaded two vlogs at the same day to his Facebook account, which was on last Saturday (February 4th). The first video shows him standing in front of the presidential plane before heading to the Maguwoharjo Stadium in Sleman, Yogyakarta, to attend the 2017 President’s Cup soccer competition. He encouraged viewers to watch the match and support the national soccer team. And yes, he held his own camera, people! He was doing a selfcam!

Meanwhile, the second video was taken inside the stadium. President Jokowi said in the video that he’s watching the soccer match between PSS Sleman and Persipura Jayapura. Just like any other vloggers would, he also wrote a caption for the posts to explain the situation too! He seems to be mastering the arts of vlogging pretty quickly, don’t you think?

We think it’s entertaining how President Jokowi would spare his time to record himself and let people know what he’s up to. And apparently it’s not just us who was blown away by Presiden Jokowi’s very first vlog. Our radar captured 341,998 total buzz throughout February 4th until this day. Interestingly enough, among the 2,589 posts we found on the internet, most of them were from news outlet (1,195), but even though Jokowi’s vlogs were uploaded on Facebook, that platform only generated 349 posts.

Moving on to Twitter, we captured and analyzed the 1,045 tweets around the topic “vlog Jokowi” and the results were quite amazing, those tweets successfully generated 3,802 interactions and 7,508,909 viral reach.

Well, have you seen Jokowi’s vlogs? What do you think about them? We sure can’t wait to watch the upcoming vlogs from our president. We have a feeling he’s been spending some time with his youngest son, Kaesang to learn more about vlogging, since Kaesang often vlogs about his days too. Let’s subscribe to President Jokowi’s YouTube channel and see what he’ll post next!
