The Philippine defense-social-media landscape
« on: April 26, 2017, 09:57:37 AM »
One upon a time, defense social media was simple. Kawal Pilipino started it all. Setup by a retired PN EP that wanted a place to talk about the service that he loved, and to promote defense. An extended haitus from the forum, however, resulted in a loss of momentum and people moved on.

Opus created his own, which eventually become Manokski, Jepot, and I eventually joined the moderation team in 2006 when Opus decided to abandon the forum to its fate. He eventually shutdown the forum sometime between September 9 and September 10, 2016

Prior to the formation of the Timawa mod team, discussions at Timawa had gotten so bad a group of moderators decided to take matters into their hands and created the Philippine Defense Forces Forum. This group continues to this day:
Other forum-based platforms eventually came about.

Today . . . we have a plethora of options. For this thread, lets look at various Philippine-themed, or at least Philippine-centric social media sites. Be it forum, group, blog, or what not.

there is even a "NEW DEFENSE OF THE REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES" - who described themselves "a new group comprising of the old and new members of defense of the republic of the philippines, as the old group lost its effectiveness in doing the much needed discussion in Philippines' Defense".. their members - 128  ;D
