Senegal revolt without social networks

The idea that we are seeing a global revolt fueled by social networks is clearly too simplistic. We are seeing many areas with major protests clearly inspired by the Arab Jasmine revolt without any clear evidence of major use of Social Networks. We also see place with major social networks where political protests are not taking off, like London, Russia, and much of the US.

It is key to remember that Social Networks might be able to support political movements, but they are far from the main factor.
