I can still recall when the Facebook based photo blog ‘Humans of New York (HONY)’ go viral around the world right after the book published under the same name by founder of the blog Brandon Stanton in 2013 October. New York Street photographer and blogger Brandon Stanton was keen to take portraits of people on streets of world’s most popular city of New York, his aim was to share the stories of people living in this business city with the people across the world.

His passion and determination later took him to visit several other countries around the world including my very own homeland Pakistan back in August 2015. From Pakistan he shared heart touching stories of people of Pakistan. And, by placing the developing South Asian nation into the global frame of positivity, during his trip his photos helped raise more than $2.3 million to free bonded brick workers.

In just few days of posting picture of Bonded Labor Liberation Front group’s founder Syeda Ghulam Fatima, tens of thousands of people have donated money to the Bonded Labor Liberation Front, a small organization in Lahore that works to end bonded labor in Pakistan.

Today I’ve also decided to start another photo and video blog “Humans of Indo-Pak”, inspired by the ‘Humans of New York (HONY)’. During these tense times of unrest between world’s two nuclear powers India and Pakistan, after ‘Uri Attack’ in which several Indian soldiers including four terrorists killed. Historic rivalry between India and Pakistan is just sparked one more time after this terrorist attack.

Beside that I’ve also researched a bit today for my blog readers and sharing a list of 25 must Like and Follow Facebook “Humans of ” Pages’ on the same pattern of HONY. Most of these pages have already fan following in thousands and all of these pages are sharing some great and amazing stories of real people from every corner of this planet world.

Here in my post today I am sharing some of very interesting top 25 “Humans of” Facebook pages with all of you. And before going to follow pages, I really recommend you to watch struggle of Brandon Stanton before becoming a global celebrity.
