Each week there are countless memorable moments from things that have happened on the web - from a funny viral video to an interesting new tech innovation.

Well, as this week draws to a close, we want to find out from you what some of your favorite social media moments were from the last seven days.

This will be part of a new segment on CNN International that we're calling "Week on the Web," but before we choose the best bits from the online world, we want to hear your suggestions.

Perhaps you came across an amazing video on YouTube that you want to let us know about or there's a new app that you want to tell us about - well here's your chance.

All you have to do is tell us below what your most memorable moments from the web this past week were and leave them below.

If there's a link to a video, story or article, please include it in your submission.

Some of the ideas we're thinking of including in our Friday segment is the 25th anniversary of the Nintendo Entertainment System and the world's most tagged photo.

Please leave your suggestions below and be sure to tell us where you're writing them from.

    well I am visiting Dubai for a few days , and took the elevator to the world's highest building, Burj Khalifa. It is 828 m high. But visitors only go till 124th floor. I believe there are still several dozens of additionnal floors above. Still, there was, right then, a fascinating event I witnessed. With all that high-tech construction , we are still cleaning the outside windows by hand, dangling on ropes. Shot a few images and a video clip, you can see it here

    From the PhilOrchestra Youtube Channel...

    The Philadelphia Orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin rehearse Mahler Symphony No. 5 in Mr. Nézet-Séguin's first rehearsal as Music Director Designate, 10.27.10

    VERY EXCITED to see him perform with the Orchestra this weekend. I have a good feeling for this new director :)

    This clip leaves you both laughing and crying. It is of two adorable sweet kittens who suffer from "Fainting goat syndrome", which means they collapse and fall to the floor, momentarily stunned, when tever they get excited or shocked.. Have a look.

    If you've heard of the Tunak Tunak Tun themed viral videos, you'll love this. It had me in hysterics... it works best at about 1 in the morning, with the help of some drink, of course!

    That business with the Western couple getting verbally abused by the staff of a high-end Maldivian resort seems to be slowly gaining traction. It's a wonder how not many news sites have picked up the story though.

    This is the kind of video that just makes you smile and think there's hope in the world when young people are so energetic and positive. Plus my 20-year-old son is in there somewhere.

    I just found the coolest site to help guide people through the Internet, its fully interactive with flippable icons and its so cool to use.

    I just found it on Google, it's called " FreeTop360 ", its the first on the list

    I think this site deserves to be added to the most interesting things that has occurred on the web within this past week.

    Because when I used it went to sites within itself, and it was truly organized , I had the most amazing web experience ever. I definitely recommend this one, there's nothing quite like it.

    Hello CNN Friends,

    It is so Sad on the web, that Elmo and our kids cannot play with Katy Perry!

    But fortunately Elmo and our kids can still play on with
    Disney's Hannah Montana star
    Miley Cyrus who still Can't Be Tamed!
