Ms. Rowena Paraan, Head of the ABS-CBN News Public Service, received nods of approval from the audience during her lecture on responsible use of technology and social media on March 22, 2018, the final day of the Nueva Vizcaya State University’s (NVSU) 14th Charter Anniversary celebration.

The lecture aimed to educate the audience on how to analyze information received on the radio, TV, newspaper, and the internet.

Paraan emphasized her disappointment of internet users using the internet to spread fake news, "nagkalat na ang mga fake news, at ang nakakalungkot pa, marami ang napapaniwala nito. Out of 103 million Filipinos, 66 million of it are internet subscribers, yet more than half of it are not aware of fake news." she said.

Paraan revealed that most of the citizen who fall for fake news are students.

"Aminin man natin o hindi, [sa social media], sobrang daming nabibiktima ng fake news lalo na iyong mga estudyante." she said.

Paraan also stated that fake news exists even before, "Hindi na bago ang fake news, luma na yan. Nanatili lang yan, but social media changes the belief, mas malawak, mas mabilis magpakalat ng maling balita, nasa sa tao na ang paniniwala."

In the midst of the proliferation of fake news, there are indications to identify them. According to Paraan, the following points must be remembered; (1) It has a bad grammar or badly written, (2) it is outlandish or unusual, (3) it has low attribution, (4) check the URL to verify the news.

The seminar ended with university officials, faculty members, staff, and students from various departments, taking an oath to become responsible social media user.
