How to read and watch news online
Online news is often a very fragmented medium.
But when it comes to news about the UAE, it’s a different story.
Many newspapers and broadcasters are based in the country and offer access to a wide variety of stories.
We’ve compiled a list of the best online news sources for UAE residents and visitors.
Al Jazeera: The UAE news online, but you can’t follow the stories online?
The UAE is one of the most densely populated countries in the world.
Most of the country’s population is concentrated in the capital Abu Dhabi.
It’s one of only two countries in which almost half the population lives in one city or suburb.
The UAE has over 4.5 million people.
But this city-state’s residents also face challenges, especially with regards to the growing number of mobile phones and the increasing use of social media.
Al-Jazeera: The Emirati government is increasingly pushing to expand its media and entertainment sector.
Do you agree?
I do agree that we need to develop the internet and improve our communication and online capabilities, and I think this is a great opportunity for the Emiratis, the UAE and our citizens.
I also think it’s very important that the UAE government can focus on its social media and online content.
Al Jazeera: How do you watch online news in Abu Dhabi?
We have a very vibrant online news site called Al Jazeera Online, and you can find it at the official Al Jazeera website.
The site is very popular among Emirati people, but it’s also accessible to other people in the UAE.
You can follow news from UAE news and entertainment sources.
