MetadataShow full item record
Internet is advancing day by day, and it is also doing some effect on its users. It is especially popular among youths through its different forms. It is rapidly growing even in developing countries like Nepal. Therefore, this research has tried to find out the reason for internet use by most youths, its effect on their social lives, religious lives and their behaviour. I have tried to find out both the positive and negatives side of the internet's impact on Nepalese youth. For that, I have chosen an empirical method of a research study where the interview was taken as the primary source for data collection from twenty Nepalese participants. The interview data is from ten youths, five parents and five religious leaders who were interviewed face to face as well as through a written questionnaire. Parents helped me to understand the behaviours of their children after internet use. Whereas, religious leaders helped to discover how the internet is taking part in the religious life of youth. I have tried to analyse the findings through the most relevant theoretical perspective with supportive resources. This study is mainly focused on the Nepalese youth context; therefore, it is suitable for the Asian youth culture of digital media use. However, the outcome of this study can be a valuable resource for all.
