Social media and revolutions

May 15, 2012

A person who should be able to say something about what happened in Libya is Dr Moez Zeiton, who indicates in a piece in the MIT Technology Review entitled “Connected Conflict – The Internet amplified but did not create the bravery that freed Libya” that whilst that Facebook may have helped promote the revolution to Western readers, it was less important to those in Libya itself.

This is yet another person who is bringing a bit of rationality to the debate – can we end it now?
