Yusof Abdul-Rahman is a journalist and consultant. He spends much of his time looking at the way technological innovation affects social behaviour. Earlier this year he was involved in a WhatsApp funded project in Delhi that looked into disinformation and misinformation within closed-messaging groups during the election in India, the world’s largest democracy.
Yusof’s career began over 20 years ago with the Associated Press in London. He spent four years at AP’s Beijing bureau before returning to London in 2005 as a senior editor on the International desk. He has also worked at Euronews, Europe’s major multilingual broadcast channel.
An advocate for effective digital and video strategy, Yusof is currently a consultant working at Malaysia’s National News Agency (Bernama) to help them with convergence strategy and news transformation.
