Title:Social media as a source of information: an exploratory study of young Libyans’ perceptions of the impact of social media in Libya during the period 2011-2015

Abstract:As one of the Arab Spring countries, Libya has lived through fast-moving events in which Facebook and other social networking sites have played a major role in delivering news, and shaping peoples’ attitudes towards current events and revolutionary change. This significant change in the mechanisms of delivering information and spreading news is considered problematic by many Libyans due to the conservative nature of the society that often resists dramatic changes. The proposed research primarily seeks to answer questions about young Libyans’ perception of the impact of social media in Libya in relation to the revolution and post-revolutionary period (2011-2015).
