PRESS STATEMENT FROM GMA NEWS TV:
"Think before you click.
"GMA’s award-winning advocacy reminds Filipinos to stop and think twice before posting anything on social media. Dramatic stories showing the consequences of irresponsible posting will be shown this Sunday in GMA News TV’s TBYC: Think Before You Click documentary.
"There are close to 30 million Filipinos online. Twenty four are active users of social media through the social networking site, Facebook. But even if it’s an empowering tool that connects and builds networks, a main source of information, medium of commerce, and a catalyst for change, social media is also used to bully and commit a wide variety of cyber crimes.
"TBYC: Think Before You Click aims to educate and raise awareness on how we can all be more responsible users of social media. Featuring Howie Severino, Editor-in-Chief of GMA News Online as main host, he is also joined by Kara David, Iza Calzado, Jun Veneracion and Elmo Magalona. TBYC airs Sunday, October 9 at 8:45 PM, on the country’s leading news channel, GMA News TV."
