In a post on BBC Arabic’s Facebook page, we see the following “map of changes”. To make it easier for none-Arabic readers, we translated some important parts of this smart post into English.
- How embarrassing that the page editor have no idea how big or small South Sudan is.
- What is this funny flag used for Syria? I don’t see it in front of the UN building. Who gave the BBC the right to change the Syrian flag?
- How come Saudi Arabia is not pink or even yellow?
- Who told BBC editors that protests ended in Bahrain?
I think this amateurism on social media will end up costing institutions like the BBC a lot of their credibility.
