Social Media: Social Uprising

Overview

Seminar Description

Social media continues to fuel an ongoing surge of revolutions in several countries throughout the Middle East and North Africa by giving voice to the long-oppressed as they take to the streets and risk their lives. Organized and connected by Facebook, Twitter and other social media, protestors are demonstrating against repressive and corrupt regimes and expressing their desire for a free and just society.
