Documenting Syria’s Plight…A Social Media Research Project

Three researchers from King’s College, London England, have been working on a massive project to document Syria’s story.  Sifting through social media sites, they have developed a collection of stories that continue to emerge in a war-torn country.

   ..”.From pictures showing a ‘five-star jihad’ to identifying the sheikhs foreign fighters draw inspiration from, three researchers in a basement at  Kings College, London, have tracked and analysed the torrent of social media posts coming from Syria. It is a conflict they say is ‘the most   socially-mediated’ in history, leaving a wealth of information to help us understand what is happening”
