“Para mangtakam ng friends, bwahaha!”—Sol Villamayor, founder, Digital Traincase “I’ve always been a food lover and I used to take pics of my food before I started Instagramming. However, I posted them on Facebook or kept them in my hard drive as a reminder of that delicious meal. Instagram is now sort of like an extension of that desire to document.

Mama DiariesBy Audrey Tan-Zubiri
I am horrible when it comes to technology. So I guess it won’t come as a surprise to anyone that I’m not a techie parent. However, last week, I heard a short talk about parenting in the digital age and felt like everything the speaker was saying was aimed directly at me! “This is your children’s time, not yours” and “Be open or get left behind” were some of the zingers I felt hitting me.
