    SIX DAYS after starting her Facebook profile, National Solidarity Party (NSP) candidate Nicole Seah is now Singapore's second most popular politician online after Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew.

    By 9pm on Monday, the 24-year-old opposition candidate had amassed 18,900 fans compared to Mr Lee's 54,000 fans. She had earlier that day overtaken previous runner-up Foreign Minister George Yeo's 18,700 fans, despite the fact that he had a three-year head start.

    Only Miss Seah and Mr Yeo are, however, active on the social networking site used by one in two Singaporeans. Mr Lee's page is not actively maintained and has no content other than some background information of him.

    Both Miss Seah and Mr Yeo beat other candidates in the online popularity contest handily.

    Asked whether she thought online popularity translates into votes, Miss Seah said: 'This is a watershed election for social media, and how this will translate into votes is anybody's guess.'

    She is part of the NSP team contesting against Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong's team in the Marine Parade group representative constituency.

    Mr Yeo, who took the question at an event at the *Scape youth park, was more bullish. Online popularity, he said, has a bearing on votes.

    'The question is, how much?'
