QUEZON CITY, Jan. 3 (PIA) -- “We have to be responsible.”
So said Undersecretary Leon Flores, chairman of the National Youth Commission in an interview with the radio program “Talking Points” on Tuesday at DZRB-Radyo ng Bayan.
Flores urged the youth and some youth organization to “make wise use of the Internet and the social media” and not be a case of “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” – that is having two separate personalities, online and in real life.
The NYC chief admitted that the youth on social media, on some occasions, have become less respectful in their participative discussion on social issues. “Habang nagko-comment sila sa mga news items, (gumagamit sila) ng malulutong na mura (While commenting on news items, some youth are using derogatory words),” he said.
