Ask Buddie started as a Facebook Community. Presently, the Facebook community has more than 10,000 members, and most of them are active. The members are from different parts of the country and the World. The Facebook group was named as “Tech Room Reload” in the beginning and changed to “Ask Buddie” later. Their mission is to create a large community of technology enthusiast people to provide support in less time. QnA queries are one of the popular topics in the group. Ask Buddie is based in Nepal.
Apart from helping people to solve their problem, they have an open source program, where people can contribute in different ways. If you are a developer, designer, security analyst, entrepreneur or anyone you can contribute to their program. This will fill the gap between people with different skills and encourage them to work together for better output.
