    Social media adoption in the Arab World is booming. Al Jazeera is supporting the development and gaining value from it.

    Oil and Conflict. These are the headlines commonly associated with the Arab countries. Let us try something different: Al Jazeera’s New Media Team is operating in a region with the World’s highest youth population ratio and a booming social media adoption. This calls for unusual management decisions and experiments with content and news genres. New headlines: Positive impact on Arab society and clever media business. Moeed Ahmad is heading the initiatives and is here to tell you a different story.
