[White Paper] Social Media in the Middle East: The Story of 2017

The use, and adoption, of social media continues to rapidly evolve.

A new white paper from Damian Radcliffe and Amanda Lam at the University of Oregon provides an up-to-date analysis of how people across the Middle East are using social networks, highlighting the rise of messaging apps, visual social networks like Instagram and Snapchat and occasional regulatory and other tensions.

This is the sixth annual report on the state of social media in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) written by Damian Radcliffe, and the first co-written with Amanda Lam.

The paper distills key research findings, industry data and announcements from the past year, providing an essential overview of social media developments in the MENA region.

It’s also available to view, download and embed on Scribd, SlideShare and Academia.edu.
