MANILA, Apr 13 (Mabuhay) – TV host Bianca Gonzalez has called on the public to be responsible in using various social networking sites.

Gonzalez emphasized that people must take full responsibility for whatever they post on the Internet, particularly on Twitter.

“Hindi naman po ako nagpo-post ng mga mapanirang statement. Hindi ako nagpo-post ng kahit anong iresponsableng statament and kung ano man ang inilagay ko doon, paniniwala ko po iyon. Kaya ko namang panindigan,” she said.

The TV host added that everyone must respect each other’s opinion since the Philippines is a democratic country.

“Dahil nga may access na ang lahat ng tao sa Twitter, nakakakuha rin po ako ng napakaraming magandang statement, magandang tweets, pero napakarami rin pong hindi kagandahang tweets na aking nakukuha. Opinyon ho iyon ng bawat isa at iginagalang ko rin ho iyon. Just like kailangan natin igalang ang opinyon ng bawat isa,” she explained.

Furthermore, Gonzalez reminded the people not to take advantage of the the usefulness of Twitter to connect.

“Sana gamitin itong mga social networking sites sa responsableng paraan kasi napakagandang tool nito para maka-connect tayong lahat sa isa’t isa,” she said.

Gonzalez made this statement in the light of controversies which have started in the microblogging site.

Gonzalez herself got involved in a controversy recently after TV host Willie Revillame named her as one of the celebrities who criticized an episode of “Willing Willie” wherein a young boy was made to do a lewd dance in exchange for cash.

Gonzalez is one of the most followed Filipino celebrities on Twitter with more than 400,000 followers. (MNS)
