I prefer the flexibility offered by Web 2.0 regarding communications. It has made possible various forms of communication and interaction among individuals worldwide and has helped in implementing the concept of ‘global village’.

It has assisted women empowerment by offering platform to share stories, ideas and experiences to solve social issues via mediums like blogs, Facebook, Youtube etc.

Web 2.0 can enable me to express my concerns towards social issues both locally and globally. It can help me expand my knowledge by referring to ideas and experiences of social leaders worldwide.

Take action! This post was submitted in response to Voices of Our Future Application: Empowerment and Web 2.0.

Hello Prashamsa thanks for your post and ideas about web 2.0.

You wrote in very plain words why you prefer Web 2.0 which is a good quality in a writer (and that's what you want to be). You referred to "social issues" in your post and that you want to express your concern about them via web 2.0. Could you elaborate on these social issues a bit more and maybe give examples?

and I am interested to know what you think about "global village", maybe you can write a post your thoughts on that!

I look forward reading your other posts best Somaye

Hi Somaye,

Thank you for your feedbacks. I will definitely write about the social issues and my viwes about global village concept in the days to come.



Hello Prashamsa, Thank you for your contribution! I agree with Somaye. You have written very succinctly (and this can be a difficult skill to learn) and have identified some of the most pertinent implications of Web 2.0, covering how it affects both you and other women in a general sense. There's also lots of scope for sharing more of your own story, too. We'd love to hear about your views, passions and experiences! For example, you talk about social leaders around the world - is leadership an area of particular interest to you? Looking forward to reading more from you, Sally


Thank you for your concise description of Web 2.0. As with the other women who have commented before me, I would love to know more specifically how you would use these powerful tools to change problems you see in social issues today. If you were going to start tomorrow, what's the first thing you would do? Or another way to ask this question, what's the one thing that makes you so mad that you just HAVE to write about it until it changes?

I can't wait to read your next post. Best, Emma

Dear Prashamsa,

Congratulations for reaching out from the roof of the world to all of us at World Pulse. It is a privilege to welcome you to our community. It takes courage to attempt to join the citizen Journalism movement.

I know little about the social issues, particularly gender-based, that concern you in Nepal. I look forward to hearing more of your voice on this powerful platform.

Your sister in the United States,

I am ready to hear more from you here in this 'global village', your voice is important.

One of my favorite things about the Internet as a communications tool is that we can connect across borders around the world--it's an incredible gift. Another thing I like is that people who may be more reserved, or shy, can speak confidently by writing their thoughts down. There is a bit more "safe space" when we're connected online, don't you think?

Thanks for being here with us!
