what is actually happening.

I do not know of other countries but alot about what is happening in Bhutan through facebook. The youth espically those aged from 15-20 seem to be facebook addicts as they seem to discover new friends every now and then and most of them come to know about their school mates more through Facebook than actually in school. Some even come to know about each other so well that they have this new relationship of sisters, brothers, best friend forever, boyfriend, grandfather being established which is clearly displayed through the family tree section. Few years ago a man from one of the European countries had become popular among the bhutanese youth espically from Paro where he played the role of a grandfather and neither did i question about him to these so called facebook nieces and i would often see his comments on their pictures. While the other section of youth who keep changing their profile picture now and then seem to add unlimited number of people and message them with a request to like their picture and this happens with the girls. Similarily with the pages “like” seems to be a cliche and a symbol of competition among the page admins with almost every page being linked with the word “Bhutanese”, for example Bhutanese Girls, Bhutanese Boys, Bhutanese Models and etc. while there are those that seem to like someones picture without any conscience and little hope that their pictures will be liked back and guess what! its a success as more than 90% of pictures are being liked just at the glance of it.
