Filipinos on Facebook 9 out of 10 online


Social networking is so popular among Filipinos, the country has been nicknamed 'The Social Networking Capital of the World,' it said. Facebook is the country’s most popular website, more so than Google, and has a penetration rate of 93.9 percent and is also the eighth most popular country for Twitter use on a global scale, with a penetration rate of 16.1 percent.

We Pinoys are generally friendly and gregarious people. We find time to relax and feel good about ourselves in spite of the pressures at work. We are communicator to any single event happened, we communicate it. We love to tsismis around, and if you traveled overseas surely you will post every single photo taken in that culture. We love to yabang our friends that we are someone of stature in the community. If you do not have fb you are not in?

Attributed to the need of our OFWS to get connected with love ones, love for showbiz updates, eager to see recent photos of friends and relatives, underground entrepreneurs, good source of jokes / news, latest sensation in youtube and the best outlet to express our opinions.

However it is sad for all children students having a facebook account, they spent alot of time in social networking or in the internet rather than doing their homework. It's somehow a parents responsibility to teach them how to face their book instead of Facebook.

Online social networking is hit for Filipinos because of our culture. We have high value to be in smooth intepersonal relatinship with others. For us, we feel better in the security and comfort we can find with others than with ourselves alone. We are also gratified with the attention that we get from others, so we make yabang and display new stats and updated photos. We trust others so much, kaya kahit di natin kilala, ina-add natin as friends, at pagdi natin sila trip, ina-unfriend sila. Higit sa maraming bagay, mahalaga sa atin ang kapwa, kaya FB this value for others become so true, in the virtual sense.

pero wag dapat hahayaan ng mga parents ang mga bagets na abusuhin ang bagay na ito kasi di tama.e guide lang ng tama. dapat may restriction kahit papano.

that's the price of technology at lahat ay available para sa lahat na kadalasan ay nauuwi sa abuso..

Bino said...

kaya ang dapat lang limitahan ang paggamit para di maabuso. lahat ng masama ay bawal

I believe that one of the reason we Philos just cant get enough of this SocNet thing is our sense of diversity. We deeply crave to know each other very well, we want to connect.
