The recent Arab Spring could be well termed as the Social Media Revolutions as social media sites like Facebook and Twitter played a significant role in creating an uprising mainly in Libya, Tunisia and Egypt. Social media is now been regarded as the medium to bring change and very rightly so.
However, when it comes to Pakistan, we the people have not managed to utilize social media in an efficient manner as it was used in the Arab countries. Here, Electronic media has clearly an upper hand from the past one decade but now the significance of Online media has begun to emerge on the mainstream level with the events like of Amir Liaquat Hussain’s leaked video on Facebook, Mubashir Lucman and Malik Riaz planted interview video on the Social media and much more.
The Social media has also played a huge role in directing the authorities to pay some heed towards the killings in Burma, huge protest campaign against the government and Electronic media was launched on the Social Media which made inevitable for the Electronic media to project the issue on TV Channels.
So, through these disclosing events we can clearly suggest that which medium will help us grow to bring change in Pakistan. What do you people say?
