Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi used Google+ hangouts during their respective election campaigns in 2012, fielding questions from supporters.

“World Leaders on YouTube is Burson-Marsteller’s latest research into how world leaders, governments and international organizations communicate via social media. The research builds on Burson-Marsteller’s highly acclaimed annual Twiplomacy study, now in its fifth year” says the report.

Donald A Baer, Worldwide Chair and CEO, Burson-Marsteller added, “The study also noted that governments mainly use the platform as a one-way channel rather than as a medium for engagement with communities.

While some leaders use it to communicate live on the platform and answer questions, others largely use YouTube as a video archive and search engine and have disabled the comments, like and unlike functions.
