      @John Carlo Cabalhao Google, Facebook, RU-clip, Twitter and a lot of western website are banned in China due to their ISP's "The great firewall". Instead of Facebook they have WeChat. Though most social media websites in China are gov't monitored.

      @Keleasar well that's what china did, they blocked facebook youtube and other western site and created their own social media platform, basically it's the same. And BTW, we don't have proper IT infrastructures here for data servers, unless we will lease some data servers abroad.

      shadoshinobi06 : no evidence that they met up with zukerberg -- THE NEWS DIDN'T SAY THAT, facebook representative came and trained them to use the social media platform. Lies? facebook didn't contradict the news.

    • An Atheist
      An Atheist 4 years ago

      So the reporter, was lying about the meeting? anything you'll believe if it's FOR Duterte then? It's unlikely that facebook 'would allow' such during the campaign if it weren't part of facebook's strategy .. What worse did 'yellow'/'liberal' party do? so you are against the report because you 'think' it's not neutral (even if it's actually about facebook), but you'll lie about liberals being worse.

So there, anti Duterte can’t even keep up anymore busting out the Western Media for an attention.

      shadowshinobi06, it says in the report that Facebook had a meeting with the Duterte team to use social media. It's not easy for a single person to make it 'viral' or 'stick' without the strategy of Duterte et.al. Are you denying that Duterte hasn't lied about a lot of things, it's his caliber. And to add, Duterte's followers, if it's not Duterte himself, spread FAKE NEWS.

    Sounds different from what goes around here. President Duterte warned facebook for allegedly removing posts from the Phil Army. One major concern is about a group's post "Hands off our Children", where minors being recruited by the reds fb removed such a very important call.

    Thin line between authoritarian leaders and those who are strictly implementing the law. People must understand that Duterte is the latter. For a long time our leaders were so loosed in implementing the law and now that the good president Duterte is implementing it correctly, people are complaining. I know that the president is in the right track because I live here and I see that everything is in order and everything is fine. Democracy is in good health.

I have been providing Full college scholarships for the poorest of the poor in the Philippines and also has studied the ROOT cause of poverty in the Philippines. Corruption, criminality, exploitation/oppression by same Oligarchs, politicians and Lack of College education for the poorest of the poor.

    Oh gosh... props to the reporter, he’s a good speaker. Very engaging... but us people who know the truth are disgusted by these lies you’re spreading about Duterte. I was going to write the about why Rappler is going against him but it’s too long and it already seems you’ve taken a side already anyway. If you’re so angry with Trump, please don’t get the Philippine President in on this. You’re hurting the Philippines and it’s people... Filipinos are united by heart. Its the simple reason why Rappler is going down and why Duterte is loved. People who don’t live in the Philippines will never understand. We’ve taken down a President before... we’ve broken Twitter before. We can break other platforms next when we are passionate. Stop blaming facebook if they can’t control the peoples reactions.
    Also, if you read Bloomberg’s article about Ressa,
    12 million database entries in 12 months??? That’s a million in one month and 33,333 in a day... have you seen the Rappler office? Why isn’t anyone questioning how they could possibly check 33,333 profiles in a day with little manpower?!? Is that what they do all day?! And they say Duterte has an internet army??? If you consider majority of Filipinos as his interview army, that’s true and we do it out of support for him! That’s also why Ressa is spreading poison OUT of the country... she knows we know all her lies! She’s trying to turn the tables by seeking refuge in other countries. RESSA IS A LIAR AND MSNBC & BLOOMBERG HAVE BEEN FOOLED!!!
    Filipinos are getting angry international media... you wouldn’t like us when we’re angry... ;) RESEARCH MORE!!!

    I totally agree with Ms. Ressa's remarks. I'm not sure what the best solution is but Facebook is not taking seriously enough its social role. Private companies always have social responsibilities but Facebook's is much wider and more significant, since it is so commonly and effectively used to spread ideas. They don't just exist and have a prominent presence in the public sphere; they make up a sizable chunk of the public sphere. Whether they like it or not, they are gatekeepers of information to a great extent.

    I never believe in Rappler and Maria Ressa. Everything that comes from them makes my skin crawl.

    Duterte cares less about facebook. It was us (filipinos) who chose to spread our wants for him to be seated as president. Media in the Philippines is bias. So we the filipino people took it in our hands to help change happen in our country, which is to campaign for our ideal leader. They see Duterte as the bad guy but its not the way we see it, the opposition party is worse, its just duterte has more supporters. All filipinos prefer to use facebook to contact their family whether we are close or far from each other. My grandma is a facebook user, thats how she contacts family pack in the philippines. Why? Because facebook is known by everyone. Not everyone heard of snapchat, IG, twitter.

    Duterte became president in 2016 but the deal was on March 2015 when duterte was still undecided to run for the presidency.
