Amitabh Bachchan said while launching his Facebook page, "Facebook needs no introduction and I feel that my official Facebook fan page was long overdue. Facebook is a powerful tool that helps bring people together and allows us to embrace being a part of a larger community."
Big B added, "I have been encouraged by the overwhelming reception to my tumblr blog, and this is another avenue to reach out to my fans, not only in India, but globally."
In a video message Amitabh Bachchan said, "I am now on Facebook.... Year after year, month after month, day after day, we just keep coming closer to each other. Lovely to have you here and we shall be seeing each other and you will be getting to know more about me and my daily activities through this wonderful medium."
By seeing Amitabh Bachchan's popularity on Facebook, it seems that only Rajnikanth can break his records!
