Bahasa has been on the Good and Evil book website since this spring…. I never did much with this language, and thought it to be sort of a minority language. I was in the process of updating some things on that website when I realized DUH, Bahasa is Indonesian! I felt pretty stupid….but I corrected it (the Bahasa page redirects to the Indonesian page now) and its good to go!
I did a little bit of research on the Indonesian language, and I realized that its an awesome opportunity for evangelism. Consider these statistics:
- Indonesia has a population of over 243 million people
(the world’s 4th most populous country)
- Home to the world’s largest Muslim population
(87% practice Islam)
- 53% of the population is in cities
(great for internet evangelism)
- Over 50 Million Facebook users
(Indonesian is the 5th largest language-user group on Facebook.)
Today I placed two Facebook ads targeting this country. I am placing these ads for a friend, and the budget is rather large. ($100 total)
I will give an update on the ads when they are finished, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the back-end of the Good and Evil book website.
