Fiverr is an online marketplace where individuals and businesses can buy and sell a variety of digital services, or “gigs.” These services include graphic design, digital marketing, writing and translation, video and animation, programming and technology, music and audio, business, and lifestyle.

The platform enables freelancers, also known as sellers, to showcase their skills and services to potential clients, or buyers. Sellers create profiles that describe their expertise and services, including pricing and delivery timeframes. Buyers can then browse these profiles, select the services they want, and place an order.

Fiverr operates on a model in which basic services can start at $5, allowing sellers to offer additional features and packages at higher prices. The platform enables buyers and sellers to communicate, manage orders, process payments, and resolve disputes.

What did Pakistan’s caretaker minister for IT say about Fiverr?

Umar Saif, Pakistan’s interim minister for IT and Telecom, as well as Science and Technology, has come under fire for his decision to block the popular social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter. Saif has once again found himself in the spotlight for controversial reasons. The minister claims that political groups use Fiverr to hire people to post political content on LinkedIn.

“A lot of troll posts on LinkedIn, which is new. Once you click on their profile, do you know where most of them work? Freelancers on Fiverr/Upwork! Political parties paying unemployed folks on Fiverr/Upwork a few bucks to post crap on LinkedIn. I am sure same is true for Twitter and other social networks. PTI’s social media machine seems well-funded, carefully orchestrated and willing to go to any extent to spread fake news,” Umar Saif posted on X.

However, he has not presented any evidence to support his claim, and it remains unverified.

Here is how netizens reacted to the caretaker minister unverified claim;
