Govt take Steps to Turning on Facebook Monetization for 50mn Pakistani Users

The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly has created an idea to allow monetization of Facebook in Pakistan. Many countries cherish it already and gain a good amount. Although Facebook operates in Pakistan for over a decade, the strategy of monetization in Pakistan remains unfinished, as are others, such as TikTok and Instagram, on major social media platforms.

The new resolution, lead by Pakistani MPA Ziaullah Bangash Tehreek-i-Insaf, advised the provincial government to call on the federal government to take steps to curb the monetization of Facebook. The President of the National Assembly also announced that the issue had already been debated with Facebook officials.

There is no question that Facebook users in the country will benefit from the constructive use of this social media site and make a good deal of money if this resolution becomes an action plan. Particularly when most of us are trapped at home and many lost their jobs because of the pandemic. This is extremely important.

Whilst the Covid-19 influenced the body and mind, it also provided us with new possibilities. Pakistan experienced a dynamic development during the pandemic. Though most countries made revolutionary policies and regulations in order to encourage the sudden change, Pakistan moved in the same rhythm. We are very late to adopt this resolution on monetization, however, and the key reason is the awareness about digital channels of policymakers. In order to fill the digital adoption gaps in Pakistan, the government must now be extra resilient.
