What started out as a simple joke and past-time hobby between friends is now a leading Middle-Eastern independent online news site dedicated to covering digital culture, gaming, social media and technology. Celebrating its one year anniversary, GIGAlb is the destination site for technology insiders, lovers and addicts, and early adopter consumers. Its objective is to become, in time, the reference site for discovering what’s new and interesting in the technology, IT and Social Media world.
Beyond this main purpose, GIGAlb is meant to bring “global” news to our “local” audience. Targeting relevant subjects and topics and presenting in a “local” dressing is our job.
GIGAlb also ensures specific services like tutorials, targeted presentations on technology matters and specific devices, all-around tech consulting (blogging, mobiles, troubleshooting, photography, etc..) and media and press coverage.
With its constantly increasing reader database and its presence across social media, GIGAlb has a very engaged online community.
The team consists of several volunteers, each specializing in a domain they adore. The Editor-in-Chief, Chadi Abou Nohra, and he heads the Mobile Team which consists of himself, Teressa Eid and Azmi Sayadi. The gaming desk is head by Malek Teffaha and consists of writers Abed Abla and Abdo Daoud. The entertainment desk is head by Jim Ramsey Khoury.
GIGAlb also hosts several competitions per month with various giveaways for various gifts to help further engage with the community.
