Taiwan presidential candidate Frank Hsieh has opened an account on YouTube and is publishing videos of himself as a way to talk to young voters, he said in the first video.
Taiwan will hold its fourth presidential election this year on March 22, and the two main candidates are battling to sway voters in the few remaining weeks of the campaign.
Hsieh hopes the internet can help him reach younger voters; he's already opened a blog on popular website Wretch, which is owned by Yahoo Taiwan.
His latest attempt to connect to young voters has been with YouTube. In his opening videos, Hsieh tells viewers that this is the first time he's ever done a self-made video to post on a website, and takes a jab at his rival by adding that he has to make his own videos because his party isn't as rich as the competition.
Hsieh has already posted seven videos to his account on YouTube. He posted his first video on February 28.
