Who is the Bolivian youtuber who managed to have his occupation appear on the identity document

A Bolivian youtuber managed to register his occupation in his identity document, in a fact that is “something new” in the country, since it establishes a renewed way of conceiving working life, explained the beneficiary.

Milton Paniagua, 45, said the step was taken last week when he sought to validate his personal identity document.

“They asked me if I wanted to change some personal information and I said yes, I wanted to change my profession,” he said.

However, the dilemma began when he explained that his main means of work was Facebook and the complication to find the exact word that represents his work in virtual spaces.

Then the possibility of calling it “feisbukero” was opened, which within the Bolivian jargon points to people who work through Facebook, but “it did not sound good,” he said.

The solution was delayed in arriving, since the first person that attended him in the General Service of Personal Identification (SEGIP) derived the linguistic problem to his superiors.Paniagua recalled that they searched the database for the activity of “feisbukero”, but it did not exist, so they asked him if he had a YouTube channel, he said yes and that is how his new occupation was patented, which replaced that of “student”.

To corroborate this, he presented the deposits of money that Youtube made in his name as payment for the number of subscribers he reached, as well as photographs of his profiles on social networks.

He has studies in anthropology, law and social communication, and speaks Spanish, Aymara, English, German and Portuguese.

His virtual performance began nine years ago and with the passage of time he came to attract followers who also asked him to make videos, he said.

He also mentioned that 90 percent of his publications are related to political issues, mainly because he believes that in Bolivia there is a “monothematic system” of interest and thus ensures that thousands of visits to their spaces occur.

His routine in the networks is to get up early, review the newspapers and publish about ten comments a day on issues of common interest and at least one video a day on average.

In his opinion, the social impact of technology requires that there be a rethinking of the “concepts and precepts about work”, linked to the desk, the office, the schedule and the subordination to someone.

“I do not have a schedule, I do not have a boss, I do not have a place (to work),” he said.

He also told that his followers youtubers have congratulated him and that they consider him a referent for managing to register his occupation in the Bolivian identity card.
