Philippines politics – is it being changed by social media

Social media seems to be having some serious influence on Philippines politics due to it being difficult to not only control. But also when people upload videos or other media it can go viral very quickly without anyone actually knowing where it came from. Add to this any main media manipulation seems to be constantly being counteracted with social media versions. E.g. a news story gets posted by a mainstream media group stating something as a “fact” without full context you find within a few hours the rest of the information relating to the so called story shows things in a different light. This is probably the first time the Philippines has experienced such an aggressive proactive social media in trying to offset the big push from mainstream media and backers.
