Summary The increased adoption of mobile devices and the pervasiveness of mobile social media lead to the pressing need for more empirical research to under- stand the use and impacts of mobile social media in Asia. In this chapter, two cases of mobile social media use will be presented as examples of collective action. The fi rst case is a comparative analysis of mobile social media against other modalities of sharing information about a protest in Singapore. The second case focused on how peace activists used mobile social media to promote peace in response to past confl icts in Indonesia. These two cases highlight salient issues and challenges of researching mobile social media for political communication in Asian countries. Implications for future research are drawn.
