With 5.6 million users (September 2013 Data) Facebook is very popular in Bangladesh. Badrud Doza [1] reports that a Facebook group and a TV show titled ‘Aamrai Bangladesh [2]’ (We are Bangladesh) are changing the face of Bangladesh.

The group is dedicated to connect the young people who are involved in community works and committed to social service.

They are acting as a platform to organize the largest network of online blood donation groups in the country. They also focused on the other community support work-service to the poor, collect money for the critical patients to cover their costs, connect police to people etc.
