Facebook and Ondoy

Social networking now a days is one of the most influential and fastest way of communicating news and status updates of  everything and anything that’s happening to one’s personal life.   With the catastrophe brought by Typhoon Ondoy, social networks like facebook, twitter,  and blogs became a powerful tool to disseminate informations about: storm status, relief centers, hotline numbers, rescue operations, and donation hubs.  Collective sentiments of  the Filipinos are expressed because of these social network avenues. Pictures and videos about Ondoy posted and circulated   by many users proved to be  very helpful to the public as well.

On the other hand, there are also some posts in Fb that created an overwhelming outrage of Filipinos against  some infamous personalites.

Here are  Top 3 Personalities  who dominated the FB posts today:

Top 1: Congressman Mikey Arroyo: 

Oh what a shame! He was photographed  at Rustan’s Katipunan buying liquor to think that  most people nearby Katipunan are waiting to be rescued from flood.

Top 2: Gloria Macapagal Arroyo

Top3:  Jacque Bermejo

 Filipina who works in Dubai. She is now being scorned and loathed because of her alleged thoughtless and insensitive remarks about the misfortune suffered by her fellow Fipilinos in the hands of Ondoy.
