Kowshik Ahmed

Born in 1974 in Bangladesh, graduated in English literature, doing a job with a non-government organization, love information technology and social media, have passion for creative writing, a part time sleeping pig, and a full time workaholic geek – love only downpour, cloudy sky and storm. To build communities I wander through a wide-range of platforms such as Blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and other tools. I provide professional consultancy for social media to engage people, connect institutions with audiences and create networks between agents involved in public policy from the highest levels to the social bases.
