YouTube & the Egyptian Revolution

Do social media such as YouTube embody a new political language for Egyptians?

That’s one of the questions answered in an article I wrote with Sahar El Zahed, “I’ll Be Waiting for You Guys”: A YouTube Call to Action in the Egyptian Revolution, which will appear in an upcoming issue of the International Journal of Communication‘s special issue on The Arab Spring: The Role of ICTs.

You can judge for yourself by watching the video below of Asmaa Mahfouz, a member of the April 6 movement who was one of thousands of Egyptian youth who took to Tahrir Square to overthrow the government.
