In terms of IT growth, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has made considerable strides. It may very well be on its way to being Pakistan’s silicon valley, leaving other provinces far behind, with the development of a tech hub, Bitcoin farms, and cryptocurrency legislation. The KPK assembly unanimously passed a resolution on Monday demanding the federal government take steps to allow Facebook monetization in Pakistan, demonstrating the province’s unwavering determination to lead IT development in the region.
Zia Ullah Bangash, the former Advisor on IT to the CM, proposed the resolution. “Approximately 5 million Facebook users in Pakistan, particularly the youth, can benefit from the positive use of Facebook and earn money,” Zia Ulla Bangash said in a tweet.
According to the resolution, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, social media’s prominence has grown even more in the face of raising unemployment, with youth spending more time on social media. Despite the fact that Pakistanis benefit from YouTube monetization, Facebook monetization has yet to be launched. According to the resolution, Facebook monetization will provide income to at least 5 million Pakistani content creators.
“The speaker of the National Assembly met with Facebook representatives to discuss the matter and take appropriate steps in that regard, and now the KPK assembly requests that the federal government take up the matter further and do what is necessary so that Pakistani youth can fully understand Facebook’s potential and benefit from it,” according to the resolution.
