Pakistanis Are Big On Social Networking
A detailed report from Universal McCannon social networking trends shows that Pakistani users are fast adopting social networking. The popularity of social networking in Pakistan is no surprise, given the high numbers (percentage and overall) of youth, growing access to Internet and a culture inclined toward sharing and social activities. The telecom reform and subsequent growth of access to social networks through Internet and smart phones has contributed to this. For example, look at the number of blog readers and social network participants. This number could be much higher if a) obstacles to broadband could be removed and b) an Internet exchange is developed within the country and c) useful local content generation is encouraged.
