The Philippines joins the world in celebrating social Media Day last Saturday at Tower One Fountain Area, Ayala Triangle, Ayala Avenue, Makati City.It was a gathering of Twitterati, bloggers, advocates, practitioners from media, business, government and Internet users.
The event was organized by the community of netizens behind TweetUp Manila and the first Twestival Manila, whose work and passions have brought them together both online and offline.
It also serve as a launching date for Project 140, which would support 140 prospective scholars from the country's poorest provinces, through the cooperation and sponsorship of social media users.
The power of social media is a great responsibility. This celebration is one way of reminding everyone of us to be responsible NetCitizen. In this ages of technology that everything is just a click away and with one click, weather post a tweet, a new message status on facebook or post a new blog, think about the repercussions of what you are about to post, remember once you put something out into the social media spectrum you have little or no control over where that content ends up, what shape it takes and the message that it amplifies.
So let’s try to be kind, this world is a kind world. If we do it even just one day it would be wonderful!
Life is good!
