The province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) has exhibited tremendous improvement concerning IT development. With the establishment of a tech city, Bitcoin farms, and cryptocurrency legislation, the province can be on its way to becoming Pakistan’s Silicon Valley, surpassing other provinces of the country.
Moreover, the KPK assembly on Monday collectively passed a resolution to demand from the Federal government to take measures towards turning Facebook monetization on in Pakistan, this exhibits the province’s undeterred resolve to lead IT development in the country.
Moreover, the resolution was put forward by the previous Advisor on IT to the CM, Zia Ullah Bangash. In a tweet, Zia Ulla Bangash announced, “Approximately 5 million Facebook users in Pakistan especially the youth can benefit from the positive use of Facebook and earn money.” The resolution further stated that, due to the existing COVID-19 pandemic obstacles, social media’s influence has more progressed in the wake of increasing unemployment, and with the youth increasingly spending more time on social media platforms.
In addition to it, even though Pakistanis are earning from YouTube monetization, the monetization from Facebook has not been opened yet. As per the resolution, Facebook monetization could facilitate at least 5 million Pakistani content creators to make an earning from the famous social media platform.
“The speaker National Assembly has met Facebook representatives to discuss the matter and take necessary measures in that regard, and now the KPK assembly requests the federal government to take up the matter further and do the needful so that the Pakistani youth can realize Facebook’s potential to the maximum and earn from it too,” the resolution read.
