Pakistan Likely to Create its Own Social Networking App

After the recent updates from WhatsApp’s privacy policy, Pakistan announces that it will create its own social networking app.


After the recent updates in the Privacy Policy from WhatsApp – a Facebook-owned social networking app, the government of Pakistan stands vigilant. The Ministry of Information and Technology (MoIT) said that they are monitoring this current reform.

It is brought to notice that subject changes in privacy are applicable on WhatsApp business accounts only while regular non-business/individual profiles/accounts are not affected,

MoIT also commented in one of their recent tweet:
