Over the past couple of months, social media has become more than just a “personal” platform to thousands of Filipinos. It became a powerful instrument for Filipino netizens as they leveraged the reach of social media to gather resources, unite different people groups, and spread social awareness throughout the country. Social media gave new meaning to accountability and responsible governance by allowing the nation to scrutinize the lives of politicians as shared in various social networking sites. It also created a new form of social activism by allowing Filipinos to organize a movement dubbed as the “Million People March” that called for the abolition of the pork barrel. Here is the timeline of the Pork Barrel Scandal as it unfolded before the eyes of social media.
