Gewog facebook page

It is fun to create the gewog pages but it is difficult to gather public to like the pages and avail the information from the page. This is my third work place page. I have transferred the ownership of my two ex gewogs to Agriculture Extension officer of Sergithang and one to Gup who loves going monitoring of the work in the chiwog. The Sergithang page seems dormant for meanwhile but Gosarling Gewog seems doing good job in updating the work progress. 
Since I am posted here in Gelephu gewog, i have created yet another page for the Gelephu. Right now i am in a process of gathering public to get it liked so that they can access the information.
