For Facebook Monetization in Pakistan Administration from both sides are working and soon they will make social media policies to properly regulate these platforms
Dr Arsalan Khalid, the Prime Minister’s Digital Media Focal Person, said the federal government has been in negotiations with the Facebook administration for a year to monetize the social media platform, which is now showing promising results, and the problem is expected to be resolved shortly.
According to Dr Raslan Khalid, the Facebook administration has concerns regarding Pakistani social media policies, while the government is working to ensure that Pakistan follows the same guidelines as other nations. We believe that there should be some necessary rules and regulations for social media, including the prevention of incidents such as blasphemy, cyber assault, child sexual exploitation, and spreading disorder in the world, according to the Prime Minister’s Focal Person for Digital Media. Dr Arsalan Khalid, on the other hand, claimed that talks with the Facebook administration will be completed shortly.
Pakistan now has 40 million Facebook users, according to Statista, a multinational social media group, and ranks 11th in the world in terms of Facebook users. The list is topped by India, with the United States, Indonesia, and Brazil coming in second, third, and fourth, respectively.
Except for Pakistan, Facebook is officially monetized in 38 countries around the world.
Meanwhile, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly recently passed a joint resolution urging the federal government to speak with Facebook’s management about monetization so that Pakistani youth, like those in other countries, would benefit from the social networking platform.
PTI Khyber Pakhtunkhwa leader and former IT advisor Ziaullah Bangash introduced the resolution in the assembly, urging the federal government to speak with Facebook’s administration so that users, especially the youth, can benefit from the social media site. It can be used to make money.
According to the resolution, Pakistan has 50 million Facebook users, but Facebook monetization is disabled, while 5 million users will earn money on the platform. According to the resolution, Facebook monetization is underway in other nations, which benefits users there.
The resolution was unanimously passed by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly, which also reminded us that earlier the Speaker of the National Assembly, Asad Qaiser, had met with the Facebook administration in Pakistan in which the decision was taken that Facebook will start monetization in Pakistan.
Last month, National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser held a consultative meeting with Facebook management to turn on Facebook monetization in Pakistan, which was attended by Facebook Public Policy South Asia chief Sarm Aziz and Pakistan Public Policy Manager Sahar Tariq Considered the necessary legislation.
In the meeting, Speaker Asad Qaiser assured the Facebook administration of his full cooperation, saying that Digital Pakistan is the current government’s vision and that all required measures will be taken to ensure the youth’s efficient and beneficial use of social media.
