Saudi Arabia and Social Media

مارس 3, 2009 at 1:05 ص أضف تعليق

               I have been researching and reading a lot of information over social media in Saudi Arabia. I have a lot of negative information regarding that. One article I read about a social media tool (Facebook) was distrubing. A father killed his own daughter for having a Facebook account. I was disturbed but not shocked.

             The way Saudi culture is that men and women are segregated from each other. They are not allowed to interact with each other unless it is in the work place. Even then, they have offices just for women and offices just for men. It is part of our religion and culture. So, when he found out about his daughter talking to men on line and on Facebook, he went crazy and killed. I have heard worse stories about families doing that to their daughters because of the Internet. The older genration in Saudi Arabia don’t understand or don’t want to that things are changing within the country. Technology has become part of their children’s world. They don’t want to do that. They like to be stuck with their own traditions and it causes a lot of problems within the country.

           Hopefully things will change. King Abdullah is trying to improve the country by hiring a woman as the ministry of education which shocked everyone. It is going to take time but I know we can do it.
