SocialMedia Bus

The project aims to build a platform for Palestinian bloggers http://smbuspalestine.blogspot.com/, journalists and social media activists to publish their blogs through linking the platform to a data hub that collects, analyses, and disseminates data. The project seeks to connect traditional and non-tradi- tional media outlets through online means of information dissemination. Furthermore, the project’s main activity is to bring together a group of bloggers and media experts for a visit (in a bus) to a spe- ci c location in the West Bank; 10 visits shall be organized over a period of 10 months. Each person on the bus will have the freedom to cover any story from the selected location; however, the par- ticipants will be provided with one uni ed theme for their stories; the subjects may include: youth concerns, women issues, unemployment, political and social struggles, or any other issue to be se- lected by the project team. Participants shall be trained on how to use digital and social media tools during the project to publish their blogs during their visits to locations in the West Bank in one Bus.
