From: Anahi Ayala Iacucci <anahiayala at>

I am putting together a brief doc on the social media and mobile
technology situation in Syria, looking specifically at:

1) use of social media inside the country and outside the country by
the diaspora community and the refugee community
2) security/cyber security risks and case studies related to the use
of social media/internet
3) mobile technology landscape: use of SMS and mobile technology by
the local population inside the country and by the refugee population
4) existing mobile services/mobile apps for the provision of
information to the local population
5) regulations related to the use of bulk/blast SMS within Syria at the moment

If anyone here has some information, suggestions, resources, case
studies or examples, feel free to send it my way or contact me
directly for a chat (time sensitive, as I will need to have at least a
preliminary list by Monday!).
