Launched in December of 2011, The Social Expat is a lifestyle magazine and resource for all kinds of people, not just self-labeled “expatriates” as our goal is to collect original writing and expression that captures the essence of an increasingly transient life wherever and however that might happen.
Because Nymgo S.A. is a multinational telco, with offices in Europe and Asia, most of the articles and stories in the first few months will tend to come from our own employees and their friends and acquaintances. Not every author or editor of the magazine identifies as an expat, but there is always a passion for the art of cultural observation and analysis.
We emphasize the “social” in title of the blog because we see it as reflecting encouragement for expatriates and others to rally around a coherent set of experiences and issues. Thus we aim to purpose content as the glue that holds together a community of folks interested in each others’ lives. This is why The Social Expat may also be found on Twitter and Facebook.
