News Plus (Peshawar): The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has approached Facebook to turn on monetization in Pakistan.

Minister for Information Technology (IT) Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Ziaullah Bangash contacted the Regional Head Facebook in this regard.

Ziaullah Bangash said that with the introduction of monetization, people associated with the IT sector will be able to earn money from Facebook.

He said that the youth were promoting a better image of Pakistan on social media, adding that the promotion of tourist destinations at the international level would promote a better image of the country.

The provincial IT minister said that the Facebook income of the youth would also have a positive impact on the country’s economy.

Earlier, Facebook and Google announced an agreement to monopolize advertising.

The New York Times obtained documents from an antitrust case filed by the US state of Texas, which states that an agreement was reached between the two companies in 2018.

According to the document, the agreement between the two companies was made to reduce competition for advertising, which was named JD Blue.

Under the agreement, Facebook could be part of an auction of 90 percent of the ads that would help it identify users, while Google was asked to refrain from participating in the auction process.

Under the agreement, Facebook and Google facilitated advertising in each other’s fields.
