The Consulate has a growing social media following of more than 900,000 subscribers. The purpose of our social media outreach is to promote a positive bilateral relationship by showing U.S. Embassy and Consulate engagement with Pakistan and providing information that portrays American culture and society. The Consulate uses a variety of sources for content such as information from State Department sources, including International Information Programs, Embassy and Consulate initiatives, and activities of USG exchange program alumni.
