Social Media Democracy Marks Bongbong Marcos’ VP Recount Victory

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Social media like Facebook are democracy in their purest form. Whatever is popular wins over there. This is contrary to the report of Rappler CEO, Maria Ressa. These platforms are not newsmakers but mediums for public opinions. Popular topics go viral because of major interests by the people. Mainstream media simply have a different system. If VP Leni Robredo’s Camp cannot topple Bongbong Marcos online despite their many trolls and fake news, he is, therefore, the real winner for the post. The recount on his electoral protest against Robredo is in February 2018.

Like and Share Functionality

Facebook has no liability over the spread of “fake news” because it does not produce them. Users spread them by clicking on the “Like” and “Share” buttons of the platform. This proves to show that such sentiments are from real people. One tends to share a favorable news from a friend.




Liberals’ Undermining Democracy

Liberals like Ressa and their media counterparts locally and in the United States are famous for blaming others for their own doings. VP Leni Robredo always refers to the alleged trolls and fake news of Bongbong Marcos whenever she suffers low ratings. However, she and Ressa never question Silent No More that favors them. They attack the majority who are against them. This is not a democracy.




Du30’s Endorsement Helped Bongbong Marcos

President Rodrigo Du30 did not win because of social media propaganda. His approval rating is still high after almost two years in power. That is not achievable if his popularity is based on lies. In fact, his endorsement of Bongbong Marcos as his successor makes the latter as the preferred VP. He is likely to win the recount for his electoral protest against Robredo if Facebook data is consistent with his number of votes.
