BBC News - Social-web wave hits emerging Asia


As the emerging economies of Asia come online in earnest, the web's ability to bring people together is proving its most appealing aspect.

Whether they are raising a voice of opposition in the Singapore elections, organising rallies against corruption in India or helping victims of the earthquake in Japan locate their loved ones, online communities are giving people a space to band together and speak out.

In some cases, Asian nations are overtaking their Western counterparts as the "friendliest" countries.
