"It is rumoured that users needs to get registered to use the social sites as Facebook which is not real. It's false rumour. We just want to make the social sites systematic and well managed. We're not for individually registering the users for the Facebook use," he made it clear.
He however said the social sites as Facebook needs to be registered in Nepal to operate its business. If such sites are misused, it would invite negative impacts.

The government as he said is serious on cyber safety and security.
