Today, SMEX is ecstatic to be releasing the Arabic translations of two excellent social media guides for activism.
The first guide is Cross-Posting for Advocacy, developed by Sami ben Gharbia from Global Voices. The guide is a six-page overview of the utility of cross-posting and instructions on how to cross-post between some of the most common platforms (Twitter, blogs, FriendFeed, etc.).
The second publication is the Guide to Twitter for Activism developed by Andreas Jungherr for Digiactive. The guide also includes alternatives for Twitter and the Twitter jargon.
Both publications are available for free under an attribution, non-commercial, share-alike Creative Commons 3.0 license. The guides were translated by Reine Mattar for Social Media Exchange and Naeema Zarif worked on the design. It is part of SMEXbeirut’s mission to provide materials in Arabic, so if you have come across a guide or publication that you would like to see translated, please let us know at translation [at] smex [dot] org.
