Before social media, Saudis were lost in this world; not knowing where to go and where to head. When I say social media I mean Facebook, Twitter,YouTube and Instagram ONLY. The scene of social media in Saudi looks like a bunch of people that were starving to death, and all of a sudden an All-You-Can-Eat buffet place opened in their town… and did I mentioned that this buffet is for free.
All kind of society member have an account in one of those social media websites, if not all of them. Even my grandmother who once asked me if the internet is a machine that you can buy from the store. Now she makes fun of me , because she has more followers on twitter than I do. Having more friends on Facebook or followers on Twitter became a bragging right statement to show off among your peers.
For people who don’t have an account on Facebook or Twitter, I really feel sorry for you guys. Because once the “up-to date” people know about it, they will make you feel like crap; as if you just committed a crime. You will hear them say: you don’t have Facebook?! oh poor guy, I think you have interpersonal issues that you are struggling with, you need to see a doctor…Let me search for a good doctor for you in my Facebook friends list.
Don’t worry YouTube I didn’t forget you. You need a whole new blog by yourself. =)
