YouTube has many videos regarding a wide variety of subjects, and many of these videos are educational. With over seventy-two hours of video uploaded every minute by YouTube users, the website is constantly churning out new videos that help people to understand new subjects, complete new tasks with step-by-step guides and view documentaries in many languages.
People In Pakistan Who Use Computers
There are many people in Pakistan who simply do not use computers on a frequent basis. Many of them have simply had no training that has taught them how to use a computer or how to use the Internet, and in many of the autonomous regions of Pakistan, such as Waziristan, the percentage of people who frequently use a computer is very low.
Many of people in Pakistan have a strong desire to learn how to use a computer and to use the Internet; however, the government and the educational institutions in the country have little desire to teach them how to do so.
Learning About Various Subjects On The Internet
Millions of videos are uploaded on YouTube every month, and among these videos, many documentaries and lectures are uploaded. In addition, many companies upload videos and buy YouTube views, and as a result, websites like YouTube help to drive a nation’s economy. If a person from Pakistan wants to learn a large amount of information regarding a certain subject or find more information about a particular product or a certain company, that person has a choice.
The person could spend thousands of dollars at a university in order to learn the information in a classroom, and many times, people who attend universities simply forget the information that they learned after an exam. In contrast, the person could research the subject online, and by using various websites, such as YouTube and Wikipedia, they could learn every aspect of the subject for free and at their own pace.
According to various studies, videos have been proven to be particularly effective tools for learning any new subject or new concepts.
Allowing Pakistanis To Benefit From The Internet
By blocking vital websites, such as YouTube, the government of Pakistan is effectively preventing its citizens from accessing very important information, and it is preventing them from attaining all of the benefits that the Internet has to offer.
The suppression of free knowledge is never a good thing, and it would be particularly sad to see an entire generation of Pakistanis grow up without the vital access to free information that websites like YouTube provide.
The Percentage Of People Who Log Onto The Internet
Currently, around nine percent of all people in Pakistan use the Internet. This means that a lower percentage of the population in Pakistan uses the Internet than in Kenya, India and Saudi Arabia.
There are many educational institutions and companies that are willing to help Pakistanis use important websites and use the Internet in general, and many of them are willing to upload videos in the native language of the Pakistanis, create educational videos in this language, buy YouTube views and take many more steps to help the people of Pakistan.
As the world moves forward and the amount of information that is available online continues to increase, Pakistan could seriously fall behind if its citizens are not given access to informational websites, and it is in the interest of the citizens as well as the government of Pakistan to allow the people of Pakistan to access as much free information as possible on websites like YouTube.
