Nepal's first Social Network site is Neprican

The Neprican has been released on the internet and the android market. It is focused on young men and women from Nepal to connect with all over the world. 

I tried out from my computer and also tested their app from my Google Nexus 5p phone. I found the website responsive and the experience was consistent on both the web and app. 
According to the creators of Neprican, their free social network service is aimed to make it easy to find Nepalis for news sharing, finding new friends, finding new jobs, college and more.

When you login from the computer and sign up, it shows a three-bar icon on the upper left corner of the app accesses the main menu, which includes options such as Profile, Pictures, Friends, Messages, People Nearby and Groups. You can post status updates on your profile, search for other users by name. I found it easy to connect with some other current users that are living nearby by using the ‘People Nearby’ feature. The groups feature was also useful in having a private discussions.

I spoke with Katrina Shrestha, a grade 12 student from St Mary's School in Jawalakhel, Kathmandu. According to Katrina, she says the app has helped her connect with other students in ISA and learn about the college admission process and scholarship opportunities. She is planning to apply for college in Minnesota in the next year where she is hoping to qualify for In-State reduced tuition at Mankato State University.

In conclusion my overall impression of the Neprican website and app is very positive. The Neprican app has a clean UI and user friendly.
