live reporting: the status of UGC and social networks in the Middle East


On October 25, 2010 I was invited by our colleagues from the Orange lab in Cairo to a convention on the subject of UGC and social networks. Not only did I think this was a unique opportunity to present our work at Orange Business in that space, but also as an invaluable opportunity for an update on what is going on with Social Media in the Middle East region.

To that end, a fully fledged study carried out by Sofrecom, the consulting arm of the Orange group geared towards worldwide carriers and mostly those from our group, will be presented today.

We'll publish reports from that convention, piecemeal, as they are made available, on this blog and on our live posterous blog:
