Azerbaijani president launches official YouTube channel
The official channel of the Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev is now available on the YouTube video sharing website. The video channel can be viewed either from Aliyev's official website (www.president.az), or directly by visiting the page www.youtube.com/presidentaz
With global technological development and the increasing importance of the Internet, the Aliyev's official website constantly presents new opportunities to network users.
Over recent months, the site has been updated with the latest technologies and a version of the site for schoolchildren has been prepared.
The official website of the President of Azerbaijan is also on the popular social networking site Twitter. For iPhone users, a special platform of the site has been created and many new features have been added.
Aliyev has now launched an official video channel on YouTube after an official agreement was reached with the popular site. Only the Russian and Azerbaijani presidents have YouTube channels among leaders of CIS countries.
The difference between a regular user of video channels and presidential video channel is that the design of the page of the video channel of the Azerbaijani President is fully integrated with the design of the official website of the president, and also all restrictions on the size and duration of the video have been eliminated.
Videotapes of Aliyev's speeches, his meetings, receptions, interviews and events involving the president can be viewed on the video channel.
Negotiations are continuing between the Presidential Administration and YouTube. Large-scale projects are expected to be realized in cooperation with YouTube.
The video channel can be viewed either from the President's official website (www.president.az), or directly by visiting the page www.youtube.com/presidentaz
