GMA News’ “Think Before You Click” campaign brought home the Safe Surfer Award in the recently-concluded 2012 Globe Tatt Awards at the NBC tent in Taguig City.
GMA News is the first mainstream media organization in the Philippines to take a stand against cyber harassment and bullying.
“If we are aware that we have the power to build, create, or destroy and ruin people’s reputation and even lives, then we’re going to be much more responsible on how we use it (Internet),” - GMA Vice President for Multi-Media Journalism and GMA News Online Editor-in-Chief Howie Severino
“Think Before You Click” campaign was launched in 2011. Viewers were encouraged to become more responsible when participating in social media—reminding them of how important it is to always think and consider the consequences of their actions before they hit that post, tweet or enter button.
