Social media website Facebook has made a huge announcement for Pakistani users.

According to details, Facebook has decided to launch digital literacy programme next year 2020 in order to create awareness among users to get benefits for use of technology.

The Facebook representatives said that there were about 41 million users in Pakistan but with the advent of 5G, if accessibility and affordability improved then the number could increase.

Studies revealed that in Pakistan women are at a disadvantage in terms of access to Internet, maybe because they do not feel safe.

The visiting Facebook’s head of safety said that they were going to launch Non Consensual Sharing of Intimate Images (NCCI) in collaboration with local partner DRF next week through which in case of complaints any unwarranted content or images would be barred for displaying on Facebook.
