Shield youth from socmed misuse’

Bandera (Mindanao) - - NEWS -

VICE President Leni Robredo urged on Tuesday member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) to give the youth broader opportunities to shield them from the misuse of technology and social media as tools to “sow hate and anger.”

Speaking at the Asean Business and Investment Summit, Robredo noted the importance of technology in shaping the values of the youth.

Robredo said this was evident in the terror groups’ recruitment of young people through social media, a method of which was used by the Maute Group that laid siege to Marawi City for five months.
