During the first 2 sessions, the participants were introduced to the management of various well-known and specialized social networks. Also, creating and managing blogs and webpages with WordPress was presented. The young attendants were distributed in several working groups and the teams worked on practical tasks, such as creating the business pages of the program “Bloggers from Zemo Racha” and arranging the blog pages. The participants also met the special guest – Giorgi Kekelidze, the Head of the National Library, and a writer. They received very interesting and inspiring advice from him during the Q&A session.
