MANILA, Philippines — Malacañang is not threatened by Facebook’s removal of pro-Duterte pages.

Facebook has earlier announced the shutdown of 95 pages and 39 accounts in the Philippines for violating the policy on spam and authenticity.

These include several pages supportive of President Rodrigo Duterte and other pages with political and entertainment content.

Nevertheless, Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said that supporters of Duterte can still use alternative social media platforms aside from Facebook.

“Facebook must have its own rules and regulations. If they are implementing that then that’s their own rule. Now, if the concern is: there would be no more avenues, there are so many avenues. We have Twitter, Instagram, and many others where the advocates can express themselves in support of this administration,” said Panelo. — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News & Rescue
