"This ethnographic study explores the ways in which Korean Muslim youth are employing strategies of dialogue to build trust and acceptance through the use of Facebook. Using public posts and facilitating discussions within the private message setting, Korean Muslim youth are engaging mainstream Korean society in the hope of fostering solidarity, acceptance and normalization of their existence as Korean Muslims. Through these efforts, Korean Muslim youth are re-working notions of Korean identity through their personal conversions to Islam."
