A unique perspective on Kurdish use of Social Networking Services (SNS)
TODAY’S MESOP RECOMMENDATION : Bee Hive – Middle East Social Media
The December issue of Beehive: Middle East Social Media examines responses to the increasing involvement of the Erdoğan government in the private sphere in Turkey and the emotional debate over perpetuating the memory of Atatürk. Beehive also offers readers a unique perspective on Kurdish use of Social Networking Services (SNS).
We examine the tumultuous political-historical discourse that the declaration of autonomy by the Kurdish region in Syria aroused in the Kurdish communities of Iraq, Turkey, Syria and Iran. These issues share an important feature: they reflect lively discussions concerning subjects that are of great concern to many participants but are ignored in conventional media, and not by coincidence.
