PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly has unanimously adopted a resolution aimed at allowing Facebook’s monetisation in Pakistan.

Moved by MPA Ziaullah Bangash of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, the resolution recommended to the provincial government to ask the federal government to take steps to “turn on” Facebook’s monetisation so that its users, especially the youth, could benefit from the positive use of the media platform and earn money.

The resolution pointed out that speaker of the National Assembly had already held a meeting with Facebook officials in which it was decided that steps would be taken to “turn on” monetisation of the platform in the country.

It added that 50 million Facebook users in the country, especially the youth, could benefit from the move.
