His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, urged Emiratis to adhere to the moral legacy of the late Shaikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan when using social media platforms.
Sheikh Mohammed issued 10 guidelines that Emiratis, who represent their country on digital platforms, need to follow strictly, when they share information or expressing their opinions on social media.
The guidelines came as an answer to the question Sheikh Mohammed raised about the characteristics for an Emirati person when using social media.
