In an announcement made this morning, the company revealed that the ‘Wasta’ category would be launched next month and would instantly allow its “10 million plus users across the region to update their profiles with important information about who they know, who they’re related to and any other influential connections that could improve their chances of getting a job”.
“Localisation is absolutely vital for us,” said LinkedIn regional manager Hisham Caterjee. “Our MENA clients need to show prospective employers key abilities such as having an important uncle or being the shisha buddy of a high ranking civil servant.”

I wonder who this cart belongs to.
It seems the new interior minister’s supporters are making his job a bit more difficult by placing his posters on road signs. Luckily for us, the new minister asked that all posters be removed.
I am sure most of you have heard the little kid who showed up on TV after Beirut’s latest bombing and claimed he loves his teacher and that she (El Mess) was thrown out of the window because of the explosion. Well as it turns out, he fabricated the whole thing as he doesn’t even go to school.

Lebanese Telecom Minister Boutros Harb tweeted today to explain to the Lebanese that the ministry had nothing to do with the Whatsapp outage and that the applicaton is facing problems. I can imagine how panicked all the Lebanese were. Whatsapp was bought by Facebook for $19 billion dollars and the first change done was making the “last seen” notification become optional.
The second one is an epic mistake haha!
I have no idea who this guy is but he’s hilarious.
