A special highlight is the social media hub, an interactive tool that is creating an online community of its own. The platform can be used to ask and answer questions. This portal was established to help Berlin provide the kind of creative services that can attract the best talent. Since young professionals nowadays have so many options to choose from, Berlin must offer special services for them and highlight its advantages.
