Senator Ralph Recto proposes posting of government projects on Facebook
(SPOT.ph) Senator Ralph Recto astutely observed two things in a statement on August 3. First, that people are always on the Internet (especially Facebook). Second, that posting about government projects on social media might curb corrupt practices.
He proposed that the government create a Facebook page that lists the details of public infrastracture projects: "If there's a proposed bridge in a town, then the field office of the DPWH can open an 'FB Group on the Construction of Juan de la Cruz Bridge,' adding details such as the cost, timetable, name of contractor, and approved budget ceiling."
According to the senator, this would make monitoring projects easier, with people liking and sharing the progress (or lack thereof) made by the government.
