With the development of online networking, internet users in the Arab world were quick to embrace the new technology and utilize everything that social media brings to the table to connect, and communicate with others. They now have a lifestyle that revolves around the use of technology, infrastructure, and social media.

This growing trend of social media in the Arab World also helped YouTube to grow its presence among the growing population of internet users. Now, YouTube is one of the most popular platforms for many video content creators and brands in the Middle East and North Africa region and is one the most popular way to generate monetization revenue.

Last December, YouTube announced it is joining with Dubai Studio City to bring a YouTube Space to Dubai by the second quarter of 2017. For all, who don’t have a clue, YouTube space is an incubator space giving YouTube creators the tools and guidance that remove barriers enabling them to innovate and experiment with content. It will also be the first dedicated YouTube workshop in the Middle East and North Africa region meant for YouTubers to come together and work/collaborate in unison.
