Arab Social Media Report

An Analysis of the social media movement and its effects in the Arab World, conducted by the Dubai School of Government.
The Arab Social Media Report aims to inform a better understanding of the impact of social media on development and growth in the Arab region by exploring the following questions:

• What are the penetration trends of social networking services in the Arab region?
• What is the growth rate, and what is the demographic and gender breakdown?
• What factors affect the adoption of these platforms in different Arab countries (e.g., income, youth population, digital access, Internet freedom, etc.)?
• What is the impact of these phenomena on citizen engagement and social inclusion? What is the impact of the new social networking dynamics on innovation and entrepreneurship?
