Facebooking the Arab Spring
Facebooking the Arab Spring
Paper
2011

Facebooking the Arab Spring charts the chronology of the 2011 uprisings in the Middle East, specifically in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Bahrain, and Yemen, along with the responses of my Facebook friends. As an American living in Europe, who formerly lived in Egypt, the responses show the reactions of those directly involved in the action (yellow squares) and of the cultural differences in those following through the media (white squares). Repeated memes, articles, or photographs are also highlighted (red outlines).
