The Jakarta Communications, Information and Statistics Agency has proposed a plan to allocate Rp 2 billion (US$131,000) for social media management to help disseminate information on policies, an official stated on Tuesday.

“Social media is as significant as mainstream media. Our Instagram account, for example, is one the public engages with the most by far,” she said as quoted by kompas.com.

The plan, Atika said, was proposed during a meeting on the city’s 2019 budget priorities (KUA-PPAS) with the City Council. The money would be used to cover various expenses, such as salaries for social media experts, infrastructure procurement and documentation.

Atika said she planned to disseminate information from the administration in the form of infographics and videos.

“We’re focusing on how to build a message,” she said.

The city currently runs official accounts on social media platforms, with @dkijakarta for Instagram and @dkijakarta for Twitter. (vla)
