Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar made his debut on social networking website Facebook on Monday and got more than 4,10,000 ‘likes’ in a matter of hours.

 

Sachin’s first post on Facebook read, “Hello friends, I’ll like to welcome you to my facebook family. As a child I always dreamt of playing cricket for India and I chased my dream of winning the World Cup for 22 years. It wouldn’t have been possible without your support.

 

“I wanna take this opportunity to thank all of you for having prayed for me and wish well for me. I look forward to sharing my experience with you, join me on my facebook so that we both can share this experience and go through this journey together,” he wrote.

 

On his official page on the world’s biggest social networking platform, the batting maestro will be interacting with his fans through posts and videos as well, along with giving updates of his matches.

 

The page (https://www.facebook.com/SachinTendulkar) will also have some exclusive pictures of Tendulkar, reports said.

 

His official page on Facebook will be managed by Seven3Rockers.

 

The Little Master is already present on microblogging website Twitter since 2010, where he has more than 26,80,790 followers. His Twitter handle is @sachin_rt.
