Consider government organisations of Nepal and it won’t take you long to figure out the impression everyone has of their poor online presence.
Now and then, you come across news of the government websites hacked and worst even news of misleading information provided by those websites as a result of poor updates. It’s time now government takes online things seriously especially because the online population of the country is increasing significantly. And here comes one governmental organisation that’s taking the lead on the online presence.
It’s time now that the government takes online things seriously especially as the online population of the country is growing rapidly.
And here comes one governmental organisation that’s taking the lead on the online presence. Metropolitan Traffic police of Kathmandu goes on facebook officially to disseminate information about traffic and effectively interact with the public.
Launching a facebook page with their web information, the Metropolitan police aims to provide traffic information, related news and updates on Kathmandu’s traffic.
I wholeheartedly welcome this social step of the metropolitan police and urge it to be more frequent and responsible on its page. Kathmandu’s traffic is a lot hectic and many on the social network, “facebook” would benefit from this step. In addition to providing live updates, other important information such as traffic rules could also help a lot of facebook users to explore facts.
I have heard FM and Radio programs that are totally dedicated on Traffic news and I am sure they are of great help to those driving inside the valley. For others who are more into social media rather than FM Radios should find the facebook page as an effective channel to explore related news and updates of the metropolitan city.
Hundreds of people have already liked their page! If you are in Kathmandu, I would definitely suggest you to like their page and keep updated with their informational posts.
My suggestion for Metropolitan police would be, Facebook is definitely a good start to maintain an online presence but keeping in mind the objective it’s seeking for, Twitter would be better in terms of extending its social presence and disseminating real-time information on things like traffic in areas of the valley! What do you say?
