Question Description

About the title, you might want to consider something a bit more specific - this is something I've included in my comments below. There is clear evidence of good progress in your work, I'm so proud of you! I've read your proposal and here are my comments:

I'm happy to see a lot more referencing throughout, this makes a huge difference. I'd consider perhaps making some small changes in terms of structure: your introduction is fantastic for the start of a lit. review, introductions should set out what you want to do/look at without being too heavy with actual 'meaty' content (or refs). This isn't anything major (it's better to over-reference than under-reference). You also have to beware of words like 'impact' - what do you mean specifically? What kind of impact? Changes in behaviour? Perception? Use? Morals? Economics? Impact is a very broad word that can be interpreted in a variety of ways depending on who is reading your work.

I like that you're providing a reasoning for 'why Kuweit' (different political and cultural systems from the West, which is what gets researched most of the time), but a few more specifics would also be good (what cultural and legal differences more specifically?), though you've provided evidence here which is great - also this bit definitely belongs in the lit. review.

Your research questions will have to be a bit more specific, though at this stage I think these will do the trick (however, start thinking in more specific terms). Very interesting and original arguments presented about the cultural resistance played out in technology, would also love to read more about this (and link to evidence).

Look out for generalisations without evidence ('social media apps have gained popularity in the last 2 years'; increase of smartphones sold in Kuwait has a reference but this is in the next sentence - where are you getting these numbers from?). You provide some great links between existing research, you can make the link between some of these bits (e.g. female use of social media as a way of contacting the opposite sex) and what you stated previously about cultural norms and expectations.

Great justification of methods! You might want to make your questions more specific - asking how social media affects your life is quite vague. You can provide a reference about sample size and limitations. You'll also need a clear cut section for your literature review - but as I said earlier, this is mostly just moving around what you've already written anyway.

Hope this has helped!

Best wishes,

Running head: SOCIAL MEDIA USE AMONG YOUNG KUWAITIS

Social media use among Kuwaitis (18-35 years): Perceptions, attitudes, beliefs and Associated

SOCIAL MEDIA USE AMONG YOUNG KUWAITIS

2

This paper will explore Facebook, and Twitter uses among Kuwaitis, (18-35 years)
including Perceptions, attitudes and beliefs surrounding social media use in this Country. The
paper will also examine the social, economic and behavioural impact of these technologies on
this group. The emergence of Facebook, Twitter and other social media applications have
provided Kuwaitis with a chance to interact with themselves, and with other members of the
global community (Kaposi, 2014). The two platforms are popular among young Kuwaitis (18-35
years), who rely on them to interact with members of the opposite sex, which they wouldn’t do
in real life (Kaposi, 2014). Also, most of them use the applications to stay connected with the
outside world and to understand the emerging trends in fashion, entertainment and health among
other areas.
What necessitates this study is the fact that there is inadequate literature examining social
media use in Kuwaiti, including its behavioural, economic, cultural and social impacts on young
Kuwaitis. For instance, most researchers concentrate their efforts and studies in Europe, and
North America is ignoring Middle east nations such as Kuwaiti. Young Kuwaitis use social
media for numerous purposes among them: Entertainment, interactions with friends, businessrelated purposes and for communication with their members who are far away (Kaposi, 2014).
Despite the growth in internet penetration in this nation, the majority of Kuwaitis are yet to feel
free when interacting with members of the opposite sex even on social media. Some factors are
to blame for slow social media adaptation in Kuwait among them: censorship, cultural factors
and associated beliefs (Kaposi, 2014). This paper will examine how the afromentioned factors
impacts attitudes, and beliefs towards social media usage among Young Kuwaitis. Of great
importance will be how these applications impacts interpersonal communciaion, behaviors, and
productivity of young Kuwaitis.

Literature Review
The use of Social Media Applications in Kuwait.
Over the last decade, Kuwait, and the Middle East, in general, has experienced a growth
in Social media usage; thanks to the growth of the internet, as well as an increase in smartphone
penetration (Reyaee, & Ahmed, 2015; Kaposi, 2014). In terms of internet usage, Kuwait ranks
third in this region, with Twitter and Facebook being the most popular sites among Kuwaitis
(Reyaee, & Ahmed, 2015). Social media usage among teens and Young adults in Kuwait is at all
times high, and most scholars believe that social media has transformed communication and
interaction among Kuwait youths, and young adults (Reyaee, & Ahmed, 2015). Several studies
have been conducted to evaluate Social media use among Kuwait teens as well as how they

impact their social and economic lives, as well as attitudes and beliefs (Aljazzaf, 2017). Sadly,
only a handful of such studies been completed hence making it difficult to understand social
media use in Kuwait. Also, most of the studies conducted have targeted teenagers, ignoring
young adults between 20 and 35 years, who forms a great portion of the population. As such,
there is a need for research to explore how a specific social media platform impacts the behavior
and productivity of young adults (18-35) years in Kuwait.
Facebook and Twitter have provided young Kuwaitis with a unique opportunity to
interact with the rest of the world, get entertained and earn a living (Hamade, 2013; Kaposi,
2014). While most researchers agree that Facebook and Twitter have transformed the lives of
Citizens, not just in Kuwait, but globally, they have not yet explored how the two have impacted
the perception and behaviors of young adults in Kuwait. Kuwait differs from the western nations
on several aspects among them: Culture, and political system. As such, it is difficult to study or
understand social media usage in this nation by approaching it from basic perspectives used in
western nations. For instance, studies show that social media use in Kuwait is highly influenced
by cultural factors as well as government regulations, which is not the case with the western
nations (Hamade, 2018). As such, to understand Twitter and Facebook usage in Kuwait, one
must study the usage, within the country’s political, as well as cultural framework.
Kuwait is a highly conservative country, and young people are expected to act within the
confines of society. In this society, issues such as Dating, and ma...
