A. Preparation
Following the GMA 7s campaign Think Before You Click

THINK about it - according to June 2011 figures from Facebook statistics portal
Socialbakers.com, more than 25 million Filipinos use Facebook, the world's largest social
networking site. That is reportedly the 7th highest number of users in the world, just behind
significantly more populous countries like the U.S. India and Indonesia .

On Twitter, Pinoy users also number by the millions, with local topics and personalities usually
making Twitter's list of worldwide trending topics. No wonder a recent article in 24/7 Wall St.
an online publication of financial news and opinion, dubbed the Philippines "The Social
Networking Capital of the World."

Every hour of every single day, millions upon millions of Filipinos flock to social networking
sites to read and to speak their minds. It's the power of these staggering numbers that
inspired the GMA News and Public Affairs campaign called Think Before You Click.

Think Before You Click is SerbisyongTotoo from GMA Network - a campaign to promote the
responsible use of social media. With this advocacy, GMA News and Public affairs becomes
the first broadcast news organization in the Philippines to take a stand against cyber
harassment and bullying.

Think Before You Click aims to encourage Filipinos to be more mindful of what they post, to
think before they hit the enter key. Social media has indeed become such a powerful tool.
And Filipinos, who have already shown the world the phenomenon that is People Power, can
once again unite for a healthier, friendlier, more caring and constructive online world.

posts or comments they share online.

yourself or to your friends?

not?
3. In what ways can online material can damage your reputation of peace of mind? Do you
some examples of cases? How do you feel about it?

and post inappropriate material online?
5. What kind of personal rules would help other people think before sending/posting?
(Let the students generate their own thoughts and insights.)
