Who to follow on social media?
In a surprise post, today‘s Socialistan, a weekly feature by BBC Urdu, recommends blogger and futurist Wali Zahid to follow on Twitter and Facebook for economic trends about future.
The BBC Urdu’s Social Media Editor, Tahir Imran Mian, gives Wali’s Twitter handle and mentions his Facebook fan page (with nearly 150,000 likes) which, according to BBC, has useful information on economy and other important issues.

Nothing could be more rewarding for me as I had been a BBC radio listener since my childhood.
In late 1990’s, I was a temporary staff member at BBC Urdu’s London office (many in Pakistan BBC today may not know it).
On an occasion like this, as my kids would say: give thanks to Allah.
