Moon Baz, Strategic Partner Manager, Facebook MENA said: “In today's digital age, watching video content is no longer a passive experience, but a social one. We have seen on Facebook how video content activates a community of people - a fanbase, a social circle, a demographic, or an affinity group. This has become even more important in times of COVID and now, as we step into yet another socially-distanced Ramadan. Through our partnership with UTURN, part of Webedia Arabia Group, we are excited to unveil Ramadan-themed content that can encourage viewers to engage in conversations, and become active participants in these stories, that can ultimately drive some social good.”
