I’ve heard Dan Gillmor on a couple of occasions note that a future American President or two can be found on Facebook. With Bilawal Bhutto Zadari, the new co-chair of the Pakistan People’s Party, we may be seeing the first head of government with an active Facebook life.
A picture of him taken just weeks ago at a fancy dress party shows his face plastered with heavy make-up and a pair of horns attached to his head.Benazir Bhutto, Bilawal dons a devil outfit for a fancy dress party… The picture was taken only a few weeks earlier, when Bilawal lived in ordinary student accommodation in Christ Church College with no obvious security.
He used the surname Lawalib – his first name spelt backwards – presumably to avoid the attention his real name might have brought on campus.
The pictures posted by friends on Facebook suggest Bilawal had settled well into undergraduate life.
