German chancellor Angela Merkel says goodbye to Facebook. “You know that I am no longer a chairman of the CDU. That is why I will close my Facebook page”, she says in her video message to her more than 2.5 million followers.
Lovers can still follow the chancellor’s work on the Facebook page of the German government and on Instagram, she says in her message.
More than 2.5 million people have liked Merkel’s profile on Facebook and a few more people follow her. In addition to an insight into her work, private information about the 64-year-old politician could also be found. Richard Wagner and the Beatles are among her favourite musicians, and it is Merkel’s dream to travel from Moscow to Vladivostok with the trans-Siberian railway.
