10 January 2013

As social networks start playing an important role in our lives, learning more about the UN and its activities all around the world has never been easier.

It’s with this in mind that the Twitter quiz was held among the users of the social media platforms on January 9th. It was interesting to observe how fast the answers kept pouring on the Twitter account of the UN Information Office due to the speed and immediacy the internet offers nowadays.

Among the questions we asked the participants were“Who did UN Secretary-General introduce as the 8 wonder of the world in 2012?”; “Who is a famous global star who symbolically donated her song "I Was Here" to the World Humanitarian Day in 2012?”

What was the topic of the first online UN Friday that we held in the  Google+Hangout?”

“Who is the Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information at the UN?;

“Who was the first guest of our Live Twitter Dialogue with the UNDP Uzbekistan?”

“What is the name of the UNICEF Representative interviewed by for the UN Information Office’s “ Talking UN” project?”

Those who have been actively following the news on social networks of UN Information Office and official website www.un.uz were lucky to win the prizes.

The majority of correct answers were given by the student of Westminster International University in Tashkent Zarina Khaldarova.

Now go to Twitter and find out the correct answers on @unictashkent page.
