This is Bea Cupin of Rappler on board to give you LIVE updates from the Social Good Dialogue! Other people will also be giving us live updates via the hashtag #iPHLgood.
Nina Terol-Zialcita now speaking. She opens with an article by Rappler's Voltaire Tupaz: "The line between journalism and advocacy."
Terol: With social media, media, government, big business are no longer the sole gate keepers.
Terol: Thanks to social media, you're able to get information on the ground. You also get to help media.

"Social media is the new conversation platform of citizens." -Jane Uymatiao. Now she asks: how do you turn it into a social good?
Why do I do what I do? Jane: When the welfare of her children and her children are at stake... NEVER CROSS A MOTHER!
