Important Things to Think About: PH Social Media Directory

Public service announcements and advisories are a vital tool in generating awareness for critical issues like weather situations and distubances. Important announcements in all media need to contain messages that provide information that is intrinsically useful to their respective audiences. 

Living in digital technology lifetyle, just want to share this Social Media Directory from The Philippne Government Official Gazette.


The Official Gazette collates and amplifies announcements from agencies of the national government. We likewise release advisories on weather disturbances, as well as reports on government action and response to emergencies. The website, through its social media, also publishes consolidated crisis response information, as well as supplemental material to agency releases (like briefers on storm surges and flooding, guides to agency advisories, and public safety warnings). Follow us on Facebook and on Twitter.

A note on the unified system of hashtags employed during weather disturbances:

During storms, the name of the storm with the PH suffix (e.g. #YolandaPH) is used; #walangpasok to announce and track class and work suspensions; #floodPH to report or warn against flooding; #reliefPH to track information on relief efforts; #rescuePH and #safenow for rescue operations.
