SINGAPORE - Highlights of Mr Lee's posts include a selfie he had taken with Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak. But aside from trying out self-portraits taken with his iPhone, Mr Lee noted that he had used social media to post "important messages", such as one that urged Singaporeans to stay calm after the riot in Little India last December and how he shared his condolences on the missing Malaysian airliner MH370 via Facebook.

A transcript of Mr Lee's speech in the video:

"Hello everybody.

"It's been two years since I started on Facebook and Twitter, and about a year since I've done Instagram.

"It's been a fun journey sharing with you things I've been doing, people I've met, places I've been and, once in a while, pictures I've taken.

"And thank you very much for reading my posts, commenting on them, liking them, sharing them with your friends. I appreciate it a lot.

"We hope you will continue to read and to go on the journey with us together.

"Meanwhile, here're some highlights from the last year."
