“The social networking sites in Nepal have more good stories to tell than the bad stories. It is the best vehicle to network and find your lost friends. For some, it has been a good source to find news. But, the best thing about social networking sites is that it is increasing Nepali internet users.”
Social networking and mi cro-blogging sites are getting quite popular among Nepalis in recent time. But, even the techno savvy people have taken the road to deactivate their Facebook accounts. A friend of mine had entered into the social networking sites in the early days. Yet, he has intends to deactivate his Facebook account all because one of his friends started flirting with his close girl friend. The person became a friend via the Facebook. But, the girl didn’t know that the two were friends. Eventually, the bad guy started giving unnecessary calls and troubled her. My friend realized the incident. He found out that the guy got the information and contact details from the Facebook site. That intrusion made him think of quitting the social network site.

Instead all actors are real characters who collect plastic bags from the garbage piles at the Sisdol Landfill site. The summer heat has released a foul stench, but the participants seem unaware of this, focused as they are on getting better shots and audio. Their purpose is not commercial, they are shooting as part of DW Akademie and TVJ Nepal’s three week long training on reporting for television.
