This research explores the input of social media networks originated by Syrians -as a minority in Turkey- in integrating Syrian refugees in the country against a background discussion of the key elements required to facilitate both refugees and migrants’ integration in the host community, the mission of minority media and the roles they typically tend to fulfill. In this regard, the research aims chiefly at examining the reality of selected Syrian “minority” social media networks to assess their contribution to the integration process; it also seeks pinpointing the main challenges that Syrian refugees encounter in Turkey as a host country.
The significance of this research stems from the fact that it classifies the content of the studied Syrian social media outlets in terms of their role in the integration process. Consequently, the social media platforms can be enhanced or rectified in accordance with the findings.
