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
According to the report of a local newspaper PGMA used 800 Million pesos emergency fund for foreign trips. Gee! this is what I call thoughtless extravagance! http://www.philstar.com/Article.aspx?articleId=496123
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.
