Facebook, Google’s Fake News Ban Hurt People’s Voice Media Like Mocha Uson’s Page


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

How could Facebook and Google know that the website they banned from Google Adsense contains fake news? Many legitimate online news media shout foul when their popular daily news platforms are deindexed. This results in the tremendous decline in their Google ads revenue. American companies that hire Filipino writers under American pen names have to lay off writers.

[VIDEO]: Mocha Uson, a Filipino entertainer-turned-Duterte die-hard supporter uses her Facebook page to spread fictitious and false information about pressing issues in the Philippines, from the role the USAID plays in the country to malicious and false news concerning other government officials, eliciting unwarranted hate from the public. The said Facebook page widens the rift between those who support the current administration and those who are critical of it.

Advantage and Disadvantage to Filipinos

Filipino online entrepreneurs take advantage of the situation. They set up their own media platforms online. Their advantage is seen if they know how the web technology works, have the expertise in writing online, and knowledgeable in managing fellow Filipino writers in expanding their own business.

Mocha Uson’s Sentiments

Mocha Uson who is a sexy celebrity starlet turned media host blames the fall back to her critics. It is evident that when a Facebook page receives various reports, FB temporarily or permanently blocks it depending on the offense cited. However, not only false news sites, pages or other functionality are taken down by both Facebook and Google online giants – the sources of real-time true news from real people are also discontinued.

Fact Checks can Lead to the Truth

A news can seem too good to be true or hilarious – but fact-checking from credible sources can be verified through Google, according to Mocha Uson. Sometimes, she posts some fresh news from direct sources that no other sources have them. Therefore, proofs are necessary for these types of content through videos and other verifiable materials.

Verifiable Links

Videos, documentations, and images can be set-up using credible accounts to aid Facebook and Google’s crawlers into determining if the news is fake or not. It is vital to always follow the best practices surrounding Google Authorship. An author’s credibility is essential for proving that the news is not fake. It must be linked to an official Social Media account and bears the real name that matches a credit card or other financial proof that the person exists – such as in the Google Adsense’s system.

Do not kill our local economy – support traditional small stores

Small Stores

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Sari sari stores or traditional small stores in the Philippines are in the verge of extinction as 7-11 franchises are becoming more popular. Store owners are given the opportunities to run their own stores without shelling out the overall capital needed. Not much money to make to be a franchisee but you get to own a professional-running consumer store, at least the rights for it.

Since 7-11 stores cannot be inside residential villages, Filipino lifestyle could change. Having a small store within dwelling areas can allow residents to just run into them when they need something in a daily basis. Besides, delivery boys won’t be having those jobs if one day, small stores cannot operate anymore. Manpower do not have to be on salaried basis because normally, family members of these store owners and their helpers could take turn in watching the store. Hoping that this side of the business will stay to let the local economy go on as usual.

Bringing all his merchandise with him, he has to balance to walk properly and stop only when he is called by an interested buyer or take his meals and refreshments. A very hard working way of door to door selling but many children are provided because of that noble job.

Making the most of what we have is the key to happy life. Filipinos are among the happiest people in the world because they have mastered the art of making something out of nothing. When producers of sun shield products are busy promoting their latest innovations, those who cannot afford them will still have protected skin – it’s just a matter of creativity.

Philippines only have rainy and sunny seasons, so being under the sun is not only during summer holidays where sun blocks are used when going to the beach. Therefore, sun shields are not so popular for regular use but a bit of moisturizing lotion can help a bit in easing dry skin.

Jaywalking Test? Try the Philippines

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Jay Leno said that jaywalking is taking advantage of our citizenship but in a very dangerous way, It is funny that many Americans failed the jaywalking test but if this process is done in the Philippines, perhaps it could be worst. There are even signs in main roads telling the public not to cross in that area because they can die. Good thing that it is in Pilipino – or else foreigners will be laughing their heads off.

Take the case of that man in white in the image, Right after going down the tricycle, he immediately crossed the street just for his own convenience – without thinking about the danger of being in the middle of the intersection without the pedestrian lane. Sometimes people can be too lazy and stupid bringing danger to their own self and inconvenience to others.
