the panelist

Very interesting meeting yesterday in Rome organized by @donatelladr with the stars of the web2.0 scenario in the Middle East:

– Laith M. Zraikat co-founder and chief product officer of Jeeran.com, the largest Arab online community with 1,5 millions registered users and more than 7 millions of unique visitors per month.

– Nadine Toukan co-founder and tribe-leader of UrdunMubdi3 (Creative Jordan), a social network of people who desire to make Jordan a creative economy, lifestyle and mindstyle.

Unfortunately Habib Haddad co-founder of Yamli.com, who was also expected, could not participate due to visa problems.

We always think that in that part of the world is difficult if not impossible to find innovation while these people clearly demonstrated the contrary.

Passionate about social media, development projects and the world. Currently, I’m supporting the Emergency Division of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations in managing its online communication through the website, the social media and the mobile apps.

  1. Very interesting, I particularly liked what Nadine had to say of using online tools to get active off-line in our daily lives. Inspiring words!
