Pakistan

Fifty-five percent of Pakistanis are young people under the age of 25.  New media technologies and citizen journalism flourish, even though the authorities have some concern about the possible social effects.  New initiatives use social media to promote greater transparency and accountability in governance. Citizen journalists say this will lead to the democratization of information and to a better informed public. New media and social media are helping ordinary people to express themselves and to share their perspectives as never before.  Journalists and social activists are learning new media skills to share news and ideas across Pakistan and internationally. Together with Bytes for All and StoryMaker, they are creating and telling their stories.
