RP Broadband Users Into Social Media
A new survey conducted by a US-based global research company revealed that most broadband consumers in the Philippines are people who frequently blog, go to social media networks, and visit online communities.
That’s the beginning of a gmanews.tv article currently featured on Yahoo Philippines’ news section. The conclusion is supported by the continually-active Philippine blogosphere, the fact that Friendster is one of the most visited sites in the Philippines (currently #2 on Alexa), and the success of local forums like Tsikot.
Blogs, social networking sites, and forums easily fall under the blanket term “Social Media.” The study, which originated from American research firm IDC, makes a strong case for the net-savvy nature of Filipino surfers.
Of further interest to us in Technograph is: what kind of content agreement has gmanews.tv entered with Yahoo Philippines? Gmanews.tv, the online arm of a major local TV network, also carries the story on its own website, albeit with modified wording.
