Pakistan, Its Youth and Social Media

Abstract

Pakistan has faced some serious problems in recent years. It has a tarnished international image, but there is optimism in the country. The much needed bearers of new hope are the young guns of Pakistan who are vocal, active, and as informed as any. They like to express themselves on different social media platforms. The constantly evolving online youth of Pakistan has acted responsibly on critically important occasions such as the shooting of Malala Yousuf, Lawyer’s Movement etc. The online community has shown its muscle on certain occasions but it remains to be seen, how will it face up to the challenge of coming elections, will it impact the outcome?
