Hello there, that was an amazing article, well done guys. I am pleased to share some points about how Kurdish youths use social media particularly Facebook which is much more popular than tweeter in Kurdistan. First of all, unfortunately the Internet service in our country is very bad. It is very very slow and expensive compared to their low quality service. Regardless, Kurdish youths are enjoying being member on Facebook and share their storys with each other. Majority of Facebook users are busy with politics. In other words, they are sharing political storys more than other issue. Hopefully, it has been used to uncover so many corrupt cases. Youths in 2011, used Facebook to arrange anti corruption protests in some areas and currently they use it to the same purposes.
