PNoy's Secretary Gains Hate Sites over Vietnam Bashing

IT PINOYs early this week can't stop hitting on PNoy's assistant secretary, Mai Mislang for tweeting derogatory remarks when they visited Vietnam.

in a banquet hosted by Vietnamese premier Nguyen Minh Triet for the ASEAN summit, Mislang tweeted "the wine sucks" for which her boss, Ricky Carandang (head of PNoy's communication group) asked back, "The red or the white?"

the wine might have really suck, since she later on tweeted she couldn't find any handsome men (hash tagging #vietnam) and that the "motorcycle laden streets of Hanoi is one of the easiest ways to die."

Mislang has long since deleted her Twitter and Facebook accounts, but earned her several hate sites such as in Facebook and in Amplicate (Wine Hate)!

Ellen Tordesillas
made it clear that Mislang's mashup of personal and corporate thoughts should have been avoided and suggested PNoy's communication team be made aware of the guidelines on social media.   the government quickly realized this and will soon release it's own guidelines.

this should be the same for all public figures, Ricky Carandang thought this was a minor incident (check how he asked back which wine suck), Ces Drilon also replied when Mislang tweeted that "walang pogi" in Vietnam... these are honest posts but they should all learn from this and be more responsible. we certainly don't like other nationalities make fun of us, right?

these are some of Intel's Social Media Guidelines we all could learn from
  • Post meaningful, respectful comments—in other words, no spam and no remarks that are off-topic or offensive.
  • Always pause and think before posting. That said, reply to comments in a timely manner, when a response is appropriate.
  • Respect proprietary information and content, and confidentiality.
  • When disagreeing with others' opinions, keep it appropriate and polite.

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…

Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg Faces Congress

Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg faced the senate judiciary and commerce committees today, in light of the recent data breach impacting over 87 million of its users.  
on march-21 addressing the cambridge analytica situation, "We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can't then we don't deserve to serve you. I've been working to understand exactly what happened and how to make sure this doesn't happen again. The good news is that the most important actions to prevent this from happening again today we have already taken years ago. But we also made mistakes, there's more to do, and we need to step up and do it," mark posted. 

here's a background of events;

as early as 2007 facebook envisioned that apps should be "social" enabling people to log into apps and share who their friends were and some of their information (birthdays, where they live, photos).  in 2013, a cambridge university researcher named aleksandr kogan created a perso…

PINOY OFWs Beware of New E-Mail Scam

an email scam has been recently reported targeting the PINOY Overseas Contract Workers (OFWs). 

the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) advised everyone to ignore emails telling them they have qualified and may apply as a nurse or caregiver at the Canadian Virtual Hospice in Winnipeg, Canada.  

the said email further added that applying for the job does not have hidden charges and that the employer will shoulder the airfare, work permit fee, and working visa (sounds interesting huh?). now the catch... the candidate is told to pay at a designated Western Union and/or LBC account, for the coaching and medical exam fees and to reserve a slot at the embassy for the coaching seminar. 

its unnerving how some take advantage of people who are just trying to earn a better and honest living.  please share this, be aware.
