Kiko Pangilinan Urges Pinoys To Use Social Media Responsibly

KIKO PANGILINAN – Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan urged Pinoys to use social media for good cause.

Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan and Sharon Cuneta’s daughter Frankie Pangilinan recently decided to step away from social media. She made headlines last month after she made a firm stand against victim shaming and “rape” culture in the country.

Journalist Ben Tulfo criticized her views against the issue and a netizen named Sonny Alcos made a rape threat against the young singer. Her mom immediately searched for the basher and said she will sue him for disrespecting her daughter.

As the Philippines celebrates World Social Media Day today, Liberal Party president Francis Pangilinan called on the Pinoys to use their social media power for good. Based on a report from Manila Bulletin, the politician said social media is now used as a weapon to people who expressed their views on various issues like his daughter Frankie Pangilinan.

“Ngayon, nagiging commercialized at weaponized na ang social media, tulad na lang ng pananakot sa mga pumupuna, o kahit na yung meron lang ibang paningin sa mga bagay-bagay tulad ni Frankie,” he said.

Sen. Francis Pangilinan said social media succeeded in connecting people with their friends and families. In his recent Facebook post, he shared tips on how to “reclaim what should be a safe space online.”

  • Unfollow social media pages that no longer cater to your interests.
  • Unfriend random people you have added on your Facebook over the years.
  • Leave groups that spam your notifications and perpetuate hive mentality.
  • Report fake news and abusive language.
  • Mute toxic words on your Twitter.
  • Block and do not engage with the paid trolls

“We have power over our social media experience, and it’s high time to make it work for us,” he added.
