The ISF can forever claim that they have their “own ways” to stop these stupid motorbikers. But in fact nothing is being done that even 12 years old kids now do wheelies on the streets!

Photos from Maxime Chaaya’s journey rowing the Indian ocean

As you probably know, Maxime Chaaya is currently on a new adventure rowing the Indian ocean. He departed from Australia on June 9th and has  so far crossed 4,600Km with around 1,100Km remaining to arrive to Mauritius Island off the East Coast of Africa.

Below are some photos of his journey he has been uploading to his twitter account recently.

Mobile and twitter usage pattern in Lebanon

I just stumbled upon this cool website that made use of more than 280 million tweets to reveal geographic mobile and twitter usage patterns.

mobile use

The above screenshot shows the usage pattern in Beirut. But looking at Lebanon map, you can notice that most mobile twitter users are located in or around Beirut, and the majority of these people use either iPhone or Android.

Thank you Mireille

Fouad Makhzoumi in a live twitter session this Saturday

http://www.plus961.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/khlosna-ba2a-300x224.jpg

I got some criticism earlier when I wrote about “Khlosna ba2a” campaign by the National Dialogue Party, since you know, blogs like +961 and politics don’ti mixi!

That’s why I’m taking the opportunity to let you know I have just learned that Fouad Makhzoumi, the founder of that party, will be holding a live twitter session this Saturday at 6PM through his account @fmakhzoumi, so that those who are interested (and maybe criticizers) can get to know him more and ask him about his agenda, as I believe moderate figures like him deserve an opportunity to get more exposure.

For more about what Makhzoumi does, you can also check his foundation’s website.

Hariri’s tweet

Reading all these articles in the Lebanese media slamming Saad Hariri for replying by mistake to a “good morning” tweet by the Israeli ministry of defense spokesperson Avichay Adraee was quite normal. It just proved that some Lebanese journalists have really nothing to do sometimes other than “philosophizing” a two words tweet!

But has anyone found it weird how it’s very acceptable in Israel for a high ranking official to initiate a conversation with a Lebanese person? Don’t they consider us their enemies?  I just tried searching for an article in Israel criticizing Avichay Adraee for his tweet to Saad Hariri and failed to find any!

Even if you check his twitter account now, you’ll see that Adraee went on and simply apologized to Saad Hariri for disturbing him!

Oh and did you notice how whoever took the screenshot above, supposedly to criticize Hariri for that tweet, is following Avichay Adraee? Hypocricy much?

Now everyone knows why we like Facebook more

I found this article by Faisal Abbas in the Huffington Post quite accurate about the reasons why Facebook is much more popular in Lebanon, and why it wasn’t until lately that people here started to heavily subscribe to Twitter.

Now, Twitter was never known for photo-sharing, a feature which was significant in bringing the gossip-lovers of Lebanon to Facebook. Most probably, Mark Zuckerberg never anticipated that his free social network would serve as the new Layalina (a premium-priced Lebanese ‘society magazine’ which along with its sister publication Mondanite, is known for publishing pictures of people out and about). Evidently, the Lebanese didn’t mind the waiting time when it meant they could flick through images of Beirut’s best parties and social events. Even with the Arab Spring effect, the total number of Lebanese users on Twitter is estimated to have gone up to only 80,000. Despite the significant increase, the figure remains dwarfed by the fact that roughly one in every four Lebanese are now using Facebook in some capacity.

We just love gossip, and Facebook does great at delivering it!

Exotica is listening

After Exotica got heavily criticized for their Mother’s Day campaign both on the Lebanese blogs and on twitter (although I did find it catchy).

For good & bad exoticaPhoto from Joe’s Box

They responded yesterday by replacing the old billboards by the ones below, delivering a new message in the same context.

They either INTENDED to create a controversy with their first billboards to get people to talk about them OR they simply got convinced through the feedback they got that what they did is not right and so they created the new billboards. In the first case they proved to be smart, while in the latter they proved to be listening to what the public is saying online! Either way, they’re doing a GOOD job!
