Huwag nang mag-aksaya ng panahon para patulan, i-report, at i-block.
Ito ang pansamantala subali’t epektibong tip na ibinabahagi ni Senador Panfilo Lacson sa mga lehitimong netizens habang naghihintay sa magiging aksiyon ng Facebook at iba pang social media platforms sa patuloy na paglala ng problema sa troll farms.
“We know trolls are financially and emotionally fueled by agitating and getting a response from their targets. Denying them that fuel is a good first step,” mariing pahayag ni Lacson na personal na nakakaranas ng pag-atake ng trolls sa social media.
Resist the urge to engage them, report them, and block them.
Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson said this is the three-point habit that ordinary Filipinos can develop against internet trolls, while waiting for Facebook and other social media platforms to crack down on them.
“We know trolls are financially and emotionally fueled by agitating and getting a response from their targets. Denying them that fuel is a good first step,” said Lacson, who has also encountered and dealt with trolls on social media.
‘Tulong Dunong,’ the defunct scholarship program of individual legislators, is still alive and kicking – and the proof is on Facebook. Sen. Lacson bared this during his interpellation of the 2020 budget of the Commission on Higher Education.
At the Senate hearing on the release of heinous crime convicts via GCTA, Sen. Lacson bared how prohibited items from mobile phones to illegal drugs to firearms are being used inside the maximum security area in the New Bilibid Prison. “Is this the kind of strictness in the policy of containing the entry or preventing the entry of contraband, especially mobile phones? There are other prisoners who openly post on Facebook. Ang iba high-profile cases.”
