Abstract [en]

In the opening months of 2011, the world witnessed a series of tumultuous events in Egypt that soon led to uprisings toppling President Mubarak’s 30-years regime. The Egyptian revolution was the most media-exposed event in the Arab world, not only because of Egypt’s position as a main political hub in the Middle East/North Africa but also because citizens used different media forms—especially Facebook, Twitter, and mobile telephones—to voice Egyptian opposition to the world. This chapter aims at examining the development of the notion of network journalism in Egypt. Further, the chapter focuses on the convergence of social media in Egyptian mainstream media, which created an alternative parallel space where dissidents started to develop paving the road to the January 2011 revolution. The chapter concludes by examining network journalism following the revolution, focusing on new networks developed.
