It is quite amazing how politicians of Nepal are using social media for various purpose. Leaders are setting up their Facebook fan page, political parties are creating their groups and pages which is very very interesting.
Although only 12% of the country's population has direct access to internet, it is estimated that around 3,411,948 internet users are online everyday in Nepal. With such limited number and limited service the popularity of social media and its use has increased exponentially.
Even during the 13th National General Convention of the Nepali congress a huge efforts were seen in promoting their candidates. The supporters were genuinely doing an effort in creating a buzz for getting votes promoting their political manifesto and agendas for future.
The use of social media has increased phenomenally during the last few years where once the social media was accused of being a worthless tool of blaming and accusing the politicians. If you look at the trend these days Nepali political leaders are more twitting and facebooking of expressing their voice and reaching the public.
Nepal's political culture is yet to change but with the shift of social media politicians of Nepal are more aware of current issues and public voice which is clearly visible.
