P-Noy's Facebook Fan Page Taken Down

the rise in fans subscribed to Philippine President, Noynoy Aquino (P-Noy)'s official Facebook page is now being questioned as some IT PINOYs think they were moved to this page from a previous fan page.

creators of the fan page, Ben Totanes and Betty Abrantes set up the FB page in 2009 after the death of ex-president Cory Aquino.

Presidential Communications Group head Sec.

the facebook breakup letter

dear facebook,

today marks our 10th year together, i must say it has been a sweet journey. unfortunately, time has come for me to walk away.

i had high hopes for us when we started, especially at the time when my heart still beat for… what was her name again? ahh friendster (may she rest in peace). but you were all smile and poised, a neatly uniformed college girl full of hopes and overflowing with excitement. you had me at one poke!

through you i bravely opened up my thoughts to the world. i was able to connect with old and new friends. you bridged time, the longitudes and the latitudes. i got found and new relatives were discovered. once a year you even make me famous sending out birthday reminders. with you, i was a kid in a playground, swiping up or down till the wee hours, unconditionally tagging anyone and gleefully enjoying your games.

know that i am glad to have witnessed you grow - your fun emojis, crazy virals, and live videos i will sorely miss. oh i always thought it’s cool…
