Social Media and the Arab Spring

We would like to confront the issue of the riots in the Middle East and how social media was used to catalyze this revolution.  Mediums such as facebook and twitter are the only uncensored ways to spread information in a society that sensors their media.  We plan to use clips from youtube, newspaper articles, and journals to show how media is censored and used in the Middle East through a video presentation.  Media helps shape a society.
