Abstract [en]

For many countries across the Arab world, 2005 marks the rise of the social media for airing controversial ideas, critiquing the powerful, and sharing popular culture. Intellectuals, politicians, students and activists have since then become adept at using Internet-enabled media to expose minority discrimination, the public sexual harassment of women, as well as the systematic torture, abuse and corruption by the authorities. It may also be said that in a number of cases the negative publicity has forced Arab governments to take action. However, aside from increasing the speed of communication and promoting the engagement of the ‘activist’ classes, the impact of the social media on the mediated public sphere is not exactly clear.
