Abstract

The rise of Arab Spring in late 2010 to deny the authoritarian government in power in late 2010 started in Libya, Tunisia, Bahrain, Syria, and spread further to Middle East and North Africa and subsequently in Egypt. Social media has helped expedite the tension and sparked further emotional digression in the already unrest Egypt. It has bridged thousands of Egyptians to march out to demonstrate in the streets to protest and to oust the current Hosni Mubarak’s regime. Social media has given a huge global impact towards the behaviour, attitude and knowledge of the audience, including Malaysians. This research tries to highlight the extent Malaysian audience are dependent on social media to seek news on the Arab Spring.
