Online networking can be known as sensation of what any kind to promote for so as the influence of bloggers who wrote them that we CBS proudly tops them all. It started as a group of few bloggers that created a group of bloggers' friends/ clique,created a buzz and then it became a formal sectarian or registered organization that reaches out to different civic and private institutions that made the group renowned and distiguished not only for non-profit online marketing but also in terms of social services such as outreach programs,gift giving, educational seminars and the like. It enhaces not only the potential of CBS members who participated the  events but also for those needs to get aid and novice to learn something.
