Abstract [en]

The use of social media has experienced an extraordinary growth in Morocco, along with the introduction of Internet at the end of the 20th century. The booming of Internet users with the quick spreading of both devices and connectivity has created a new area of expression far different than the official discourse the Moroccan public was used to. The take-over of the online space in Morocco has shown new types of communication and protest that are completely in opposition with the official media discourse. Among the various social media tools that are used in Morocco today, YouTube is a one of the most popular, for both producing and watching content.

This thesis investigates the use of YouTube in Morocco, both in an official way and as a counter-power tool, mainly highlighting the emerging of oppositional popular cultural discourse and its diverse aspects.

Abstract [sv]

Användningen av sociala medier har upplevt en extraordinär tillväxt i Marocko, samtidigt som Internet började sprida sig vid slutet av 90-talet. Höjningen av Internetanvändare samt den snabba spridningen av båda enheterna och anslutningen har skapat ett nytt uttryckssätt annorlunda än den officiella diskursen som den marockanska publiken brukade. Övertagandet av Online utrymmet i Marocko har visat nya kommunikation och proteststekniker som är helt motsatta till den officiella mediediskursen. Bland de olika sociala medierna som används i Marocko, är YouTube en av de mest populära, både för att producera och titta på innehåll.

Denna avhandling undersöker YouTubes användning i Marocko, både officiellt och som ett motkraftsverktyg, som lyfter fram den framväxande oppositions populära kulturella diskursen och dess olika aspekter.
