Some of our objectives include supporting and encouraging bloggers and users of social media and advocating for their right of freedom of speech, promoting the proper usage of social media tools among the Lebanese community given their current popularity and importance, gathering bloggers and users of social media under one organization in order to facilitate the creation of common activities and interests, and encouraging people to start their own blogs and help them get started by acquainting them with the technical and cultural aspects of social media.
