    ICT’s Convergence Continuum in Egyptian Newsroom2018In: Media and communication in the interactive age, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates: Abu Dhabi University , 2018, p. 34-54Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    News has always been influenced by the utilization of technological innovations inside newsrooms. During the past decade news-making has experienced significant changes, including the convergence of social media, citizen journalism, niche journalism, and data journalism in news production.

    In Egypt’s post 20 11 era, journalism function is expected to be more than a source for news, but a bridge between events on the streets and the Internet. They needed to be seen as a body to enhance interaction among various groups and actors in order to influence public opinion and mobilize support. Journalists are needed to create a form of Agenda cutting on government mainstream media creating an alternative form of media including news from margins to the mainstream news media became available in networked information societies.

    In democratizing societies such as Egypt, the news media need to be active in the network society seeing different publics as creators, (re)actors, (re)makers and redistributors of news. Further,  journalists need to be bridge of information from and among different political activists/networks and their audience(s) providing citizens with vibrant, argumentative and often the most informative commentary available. This study aims at investigating the role played by ICTs in news production.

    Interactivity in Egyptian Newspapers2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The utilisation of ICTs in Egyptian media has irrevocably changed the nature of the traditional news consumption. One can see the Egyptian online society as a multiplicity of networks. These networks have developed, transformed and expanded over time, operating across all areas of life. Nonetheless, in essence they are socio-political and cultural in origin. This trend changed the way audiences consumed news, with traditional media -especially independent and opposition- started to utilize ICTs to access online information to develop their media content to escape government control. Several media organisations also started to expand their presence online so that, as well as providing news content, they also provided them with a ‘space’ to interact amongst themselves and with media organisations. Audiences started to provide detailed descriptions of Egyptian street politics, posting multimedia material, generating public interest, and reinforcing citizen power hence democratic capacity.

    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.

    Abstract [en]

    Since 2005, the utilization of social media has irrevocably changed the nature of the traditional news consumption in Egyptian media landscape. One can see the Egyptian online society as a multiplicity of networks. Audiences started to provide detailed descriptions of Egyptian street politics, posting multimedia material, generating public interest, and reinforcing citizen power. This trend changed the way audiences consumed news, with traditional media, (especially independent and opposition news organizations) started to access online information to develop their media content and to escape government control. Several media organisations started to expand their presence to social networks to provide better news content, ultimately changing news organizations attitude towards diffusion of social media and social media presence in newsrooms.

    In Egypt’s news organization development initiative, the convergence of social media into mainstream media perhaps perform the most critical function, playing the role of a mediator in information transactions within the society. Traditional media, especially independent media, started to utilize social media as an alternative source for information and a platform to bridge between events on the streets and the Internet. This convergence has developed the role of the journalism in Egypt, altering it from simply reporting about the political process to instead being an active participant in shaping, influencing the political process. As journalists cannot work in ‘splinted isolation’ anymore, particularly with the abundance of information and the facts that, first, the public are perfectly capable to access news and information for themselves, and second, the institutional players (profit, governmental, non-profit, activist) are increasingly geared towards addressing their constituencies directly instead of using the news media as a go-between.

    The aim of this study is to examine how different news organisations (government, opposition, non-partisan independent) are utilizing social media to establish a sustainable infrastructure news flow. The study is based on newsroom analysis and interviews in four Egyptian newsrooms Al Ahram, Al Masry Al Youm, Al Shorouk, and Al Tahrir to see how different newsrooms approaches towards building a sustainable structure for distributing news and based on social networks and changes in news operation infrastructure to maintain such approach.

    Social Media and the Transformation of post-revolution Egyptian newspapers Public Space2014In: Social Media and the Transformation of Public Space, 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The opening months of 2011, the world witnessed a series of turmoil events in Egypt that soon lead to uprisings toppling President Mubarak regime. The Egyptian revolution was, by far, the most media exposed event in the Middle East for journalists/activists using different forms of media –especially social media-­ to voice Egyptian opposition to the world. Even with the Egyptian government shutting Internet lines, imprisoning activists, blocking media websites, confiscating newspapers, cutting off mobile communications, and scrambling satellite signals to limit coverage of the events, Egyptian journalists circumvented government pressure to voice their cause online that lead many label the Egyptian uprising as the ‘Facebook’ or the ‘Twitter’ revolution. 

    Since 2011, the utilisation of social media has irrevocably changed the nature of the traditional public sphere. One can see the Egyptian online society as a multiplicity of networks. Audiences started to provide detailed descriptions of Egyptian street politics, posting multimedia material, generating public interest, and reinforcing citizen power and democracy. This trend changed the way audiences consumed news, with traditional media, (especially independent and opposition) started to access online information to develop their media content and to escape government control.  

    Indeed, after the first phase of the revolution, social media became a main source for information and political participation. New actors started to invest in creating news portals to attract communities and to enable these communities to interact with each other’s ideas on the one hand and with the ideas of the news portals on the other.

    Similarly, several media organisations started to expand their presence to social networks so that, as well as providing news content, they also provided a ‘space’ for interactivity. Social media news sites became the playground for political parties, activists, and groups from various ideologies creating ‘online spaces of flows’ to cater for the emerging needs of the readers. In transitional societies moving towards democracy, such as Egypt, political development is a central topic which journalists mediate with their audience. Indeed, journalists inform the audience and facilitate informed choices as ‘gatewatchers’, not as watchdog ‘gatekeepers’, in the power struggle between audience, media, and politics.  

    The aim of this paper is to study how different news organisations (government, opposition, non-­‐partisan) are utilizing social media to establish a sustainable infrastructure for free and public democratic deliberations in the post Egypt revolution. Building on Network journalism theories and empirical material collected, this article aims at utilizing Critical Discourse Analysis and netnography at answerign the following research questions: (1) the use of social media by Egyptian newsorganizations in interacting with audience (2) nature of online discussions in news organizations social media outlets.
