Actress Maymay Entrata is one celebrity who rarely posts on social media.
Entrata feels that social media has become toxic, what with the bashings that celebrities get each time they post something, even when they share positive things. But she still believes social media can be beneficial, which is why on the rare occasions that she shares, she posts things that can inspire her fans.
“Siguro ang positive doon ay lagi kong pinipili ang post ko kung saan ay nakakapagbigay ng positibo doon sa mga taong pumupunta sa social media ko,” Entrata said during the online press conference for the digital anthology series “Click, Like, Share” last Thursday, Aug. 26.
(Maybe the positive thing here is I always choose my posts, so they can spread positivity to anyone who happens to go to my social media.)
Entrata plays a waitress in “Lurker,” the first episode of the series, which will start streaming on Sept. 3 via iWantTFC, and will be aired on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live and A2Z every Sunday at 8:30 p.m.
“Siguro hindi ko lang nagugustuhan ‘yung mga taong laging nakikita ang pagkakamali ng kung ano ang nakikita nila sa post,” she noted. “Kahit na ano’ng gawin mo na maging mabait o maging perpekto po doon sa pino-post mo ay lagi silang merong sasabihing mali.”
(Maybe the only thing that I really do not like are people who always see faults in what they see from posts. No matter what you do to be kind or perfect in what you posted, they will always find fault.)
But for the last five years, Entrata has learned how to handle her bashers. What she is asking for is that netizens in social media refrain from commenting negatively, especially during these difficult times.
“Kailangan talaga natin ay tulungan ang isa’t isa. I-light up natin ang isa’t isa na maging positibo. Sana ay magamit nila sa tama ang social media,” the actress appealed.
(What we really need to do is help each other. We need to make things light for each other, to become positive. I hope people use social media properly.) JB
