Abstract

This study is an attempt to investigate children's use of Facebook and the kind of gratification obtained from this use in two different environments, namely Egypt and the UAE, in terms of political movements. Further, this study will identify differences of gratifications obtained by children on Facebook in times of peace and crisis such as popular uprisings in conflict zones and other areas geographically remote from conflict.
