The company maintains that while the government is struggling to regulate foreign social networking sites such as Facebook, X (formerly Twitter), etc., Nepali products will be easy to monitor, regulate, and bring within the scope of the existing provisions. The government has played with the idea of regulating social media and internet content filtering to avert harmful content, however, the success has been limited as most platforms are originally made outside Nepal.
Likewise, the money spent on advertisement in the app will stay within the country saving huge amounts annually. It will also set a precedent for entrepreneurship and prove a case that a Nepal-made social platform could also make a mark.
It adds that illicit and illegal activities are strongly discouraged and will cooperate with the government in case of necessity to contain such behavior. Further, it’s said that accounts that post material compromising social harmony will be suspended and also removed as per the app’s community guidelines.
