Emerging social media communities.

Since the first Filipino bloggers began writing online at the turn of the century, their numbers and significance have grown as the years passed. In 2010, Visayas and Mindanao bloggers have separately organized blogging summits and awards for several years now. Globe Telecom, Nokia Philippines, and the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI) have found engaging an increasing number of bloggers effective in promoting products, services and advocacy online and offline.

Meanwhile, Facebook communities have likewise grown around places to several hundreds of thousand members like ‘I love Cebu.’ Groups such as “Barkadahan Tsika Tsika Cebu” have reached over 20,000 members. More locally-based SMEs have begun engaging these online communities for promoting products and services. GT Cosmetics has gone the route of creating GT & Me – a Facebook community that celebrates “Gandang Tunay” or true beauty.

The growth of social media communities is abetted through active engagement by traditional print, radio, and television media outlets.

The power of these social media communities was seen in how fast the spread of information about the tragedy wrought by typhoon Sendong in Northern Mindanao and the mobilization of resources to help the victims. Thus aside from the traditional media, top Philippine corporations like Globe Telecom posted advisories about its relief efforts through social media.

Come 2012, PRworks anticipates that public relations will continued to be defined by developments in social media. Social media will grow as the information-dissemination avenue for both top corporations and SMEs in southern Philippines. Read part D. Back
