Social media och den arabiska våren!.

Redan i första kapitlet av den nya boken “Using Social Media for Global Security” så diskuterar författarna Ravi Gupta och Hugh Brook vilken påverkan och vilka konsekvenser som de sociala medierna haft på den Arabiska våren. De resonerar kort och gått som så att: “However, what is indeniable and the most relevant for our case is the fact that during the Arab Spring, social media technologies: (1) Helped people directly involved in the Arab Spring and those sympathetic to the protestors plight publicize their message to the international community, (2) Undermined the legitimacy of government forces by showcasing vivid examples of government oppression and violence through shared videos and pictures, and (3) Helped protestors mobilize and coordinate action against government forces”. (Gupta & Brooks.2013:7-8)
