The “Abu Al-Jabr” Muhammad bin Musa Al-Khwarizmi did not know that he would immortalize the homeland of his forefathers to this extent while sitting in the House of Wisdom writing in the science of algebra.
People have asked an important question: Why do we not have a solid Arabic social media application that belongs to us and belongs to? I add questions like: Why don’t we have this application, when we have the techies and talents who have the ability to produce such products? This question can be branched out as you wish.
Many will talk about problems in education, difficulties in society, and the like, ready-made arguments that are readily available in the mind, and that can be easily evoked, not only because of their prevalence and abundance, but because they are part of our deception on ourselves by placing the blame on others and the other, and the present absent, unknown, known: the nation.. the system The political, and the like expressions within which we put all the roles that we are unable or imagine inability to.
But a part is absent from our awareness and awareness of this type of problems related to the industrial, cultural and communicative product, which is that the deficit in this section is a branch of the absence of the theoretical dimension or philosophy in its practical form related to the connection of these products with the culture and civilization of the person who produced them.
Social media is the legitimacy of the communication revolution on the one hand, and for a world full of interlocking and rapid relationships on the other hand, and needs new spaces for communication that respond to the distance between distances and the need to constantly get acquainted with new people. Is it other things? And more than that, do we deal with it as a means of communication and expression, or as a whole life that we indulge in and not get out of?

In fact, it is a crisis of theorizing before application, and a crisis of ideas before it is a crisis of relationships or systems and things. It is easy to get the agricultural tractor, the agricultural harvester or the water pump, but what is the underlying philosophy in the light of which this device was invented and worked in its environment and society, which must be To make an amendment to it that is consistent with my needs and what I want to achieve, otherwise it would be futile to bring all this equipment and stack it to no avail.
Any Arabic application for social communication must remember well that its main function is not only communication, but rather to address several problems such as freedom of expression and opinion, the issue of systematic media disinformation, and fictitious accounts that work in this field, and it must realize that its algorithms must belong to the present time, its requirements and needs. And the patterns of his relations, and that he has a clearly defined and declared moral charter that removes the mistrust and suspicion that has become obscuring our relationship with the means and applications that we have all experienced over the past decade.
The scientific inventions were never only the daughter of laboratories, but rather the daughter of the issues of the society in which they grew up, and when they crossed into other societies, their success depends on the common human needs and desires, and on the ability of those who bring them to bring about a controlled change to reduce the negative consequences that may occur without destroying Free will and free thinking of man.
