These virtual social networking sites have introduced the hybrid lifestyle of “online-offline activities” which are now a part of everyday life for people with access to internet and smartphone anywhere in the world.
Facebook is the most common and used networking site in Bangladesh, even though it is not exclusively a dating site, people have found ways to use it to find friends, potential dates and partners.
While conducting fieldwork in an urban slum in Bangladesh, I came across Runu, a 17-year-old girl who is a secondary school graduate.
What I found most interesting was that she seemed to be “collecting” male friends through her Facebook network, stating she wanted to have a male friend from all 64 districts in the country.
However, I found that among members of the urban middle-class, mobile apps like Tinder are more popular.
Runu said she is an avid user of Facebook and boasted having more than 700 friends on her list.She made a little money by privately tutoring two class-1 students at home and bought a Chinese smartphone from a shop inside the slum with just 1,000 Taka.These shops mostly sell stolen or lost mobile phones for much-reduced prices, which allows adolescents like Runu to buy their own smartphones.Grameenphone is a public limited company listed with the Dhaka Stock Exchange Limited and Chittagong Stock Exchange Limited.
