Advisory on Use of Social Media

Press Release 031-2012 21 ( February 2012 ) 

Advisory on Use of Social Media

The Philippine Embassy in Riyadh recently received an electronic mail commenting on contents of social media sites, particularly photos uploaded by a Filipino community organization of a female “model” based in the Kingdom wearing a transparent night outfit. The photo drew negative reactions from locals, and requested the Embassy to remind those concerned to refrain from uploading such material online, as these photos are inconsistent with local customs and cultural sensitivities.

The Philippine Embassy in Riyadh urges all Filipinos in the Kingdom to be prudent and careful on the nature of photos and videos that they upload on social media sites.

The Embassy is issuing this Advisory to avoid unnecessary actions that might be taken against any group or individual by local authorities. –end
