Facebook’s Monopoly; A big problem for Nepali Media Network

Posted: November 7, 2011 in Uncategorized

I don’t use facebook much but today I really felt bad about looking at this mcDowell’s whiskey advertisement at the side of my facebook sponsored links.

The reason is our government has banned the use of such adds in big TV coorporation and Newspapers, so as to make the young people away from such type of narcotic drugs. Most of the youngsters use facebook in Nepal because they are the new generation.

But now facebook an international social network is specificly adverstising these type of advertisement among the youngsters which is banned in main stream media in nepal.

The two biggest problem due to this is the nepali youth are specifically targeted so they might end up using such drugs, the second is the money which is used for advertisement is directly routed to international media through advertisement which would again hamper the local media and news agencies who are banned from displaying such advertisement.

Hence there should be some rules and regulation be made, and some action to be taken as well so as to make this kind of monopoly in nepal, being an international media network should never be an excuse. McDowell should also be inquired by Nepaleese Government  in detail. And if facebook wants to run on Nepal then it should strictly abide by the local government  rules and regulation.
