dc.description.abstract As the Arab Spring was sweeping away one regime after the other in the Arab World during the years 2010-2011; the eyes of the world were centered on the modern media outlets that were carrying and reporting the news. "Facebook Revolution", "Twitter Revolution", "Social Media Revolution" were only some of the titles given to the various uprisings in the Middle East, were modern media played a crucial role in revolutions. This thesis will explore the various roles of the modern media landscape during the three stages of the Egyptian Revolution. It will explore the pre-revolution stage, the apex of the revolution and the post-revolution stage, in order to depict and understand how modern media moves from raising awareness, to organizing protests and then guarding their gains and diffusing revolution. The argument will be carried through a media content study and a narrative study of the first modern Egyptian Revolution of 2010-2011. en_US
