“Greetings from the Middle”: The Federal Intelligence Service (BND) is expanding its social media activities with its own Instagram account.

The German foreign secret service, with its headquarters in Berlin-Mitte, launched its own channel on Monday in the social network, which is particularly popular with adolescents and young adults. The appearance serves to attract young talent.

“A modern employer must also be present wherever possible applicants cavort,” said BND President Bruno Kahl of the German Press Agency in Berlin. The BND was previously known for his strict reluctance in public.

In addition to a modern website, the BND has been represented on the YouTube video portal since November 2018, but only has a good 1,000 subscribers there. In March, the secret service started a campaign on Twitter (#FollowTheGlitchKarnickel) to recruit experts from the hacker scene. However, the BND is not planning its own Twitter channel, such as that operated by the domestic secret service, the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, with a good 28,000 followers.
