Man cannot live by Facebook alone. If we live in Eastern Europe, the chance that we find the majority of people we know on VKontakte instead of Mark Zuckerberg’s portal significantly grows.
Lit.bel – its name, an acronym of “letters in Belarusian”, tells it all – is a website created by Siarhiej Savich, a citizen of Zhodzina, Belarus. A compilation of photos and sentences of existential nature in Belarusian becomes a more charming twin of a popular meme. An optimistic message conveyed by the collection of images posted on Lit.bel has become quite popular among Belarusian netizens in a record time. The site was liked by ca. 18,000 users of VKontakte – the number which for sure is a source of pride and satisfaction for its creator. In the interview for Generation.by, Siarhiej Savich admitted that the aim of the project was popularization of the Belarusian language.
