As more and more young Cambodians log on and use social media, technology is becoming an important source of change in the country, experts say. Cambodia has seen an explosion in the use of online and mobile technology, particularly social media platforms like Facebook. Participants of a recent technology workshop in Phnom Penh say this has made them more informed than ever. Tin Savetey, a university student, says she has become better informed online. “I can know information from around the world and learn about what is happening and in which country, via social media,” she said. Technology experts say social media is helping a lot of Cambodians like Tin Savetey share information with the public. Especially young people. (Kun Chenda, Phnom Penh)
