The Fun Battle in ‘Online Cluster Talbugan sa GenSan’
Yadu Karu: What motivates you to create the Online Cluster Talbugan sa GenSan?
Filipinos know how to lighten a serious event or situation like this pandemic through making social media memes and funny videos. I take advantage of that good trait to help minimize our emotional and mental fatigue.
YK: Can you briefly explain how this online community works?
YK: What are the initial reactions of the members?
YK: How do they participate?
YK: What's the best thing about being an admin, so far?
Like in other online groups or organizations, ill-mannered people are always there willing to infect others with their negative energy. For me, it is very challenging since the goal of the FB group is to fight the public hysteria caused by the virus through a fun online environment.
YK: What are the challenges you've encountered? How do you deal with it?
YK: After the health crisis, what's your plan for the FB group?
I hope we continue supporting each other (positively) even after the crisis.
