Filipino seniors in Australia are most affected by Facebook's move to ban news organizations in the social media platform.
Dr Earvin Cabalquinto's research reveals that older Filipinos are more active Facebook users as compared to the younger Filipinos and Filipino-Australians.
- Older Filipinos in Australia use Facebook for their source of news and information
- News posted on Facebook by trusted news agencies are frequently accessed
- Through the help of family and community members they can learn how to access and navigate news websites
"They access Philippine news via Facebook which helps them in deciding how to extend help to their families back home," shares Charles Earvin Cabalquinto PhD, Communications lecturer at Deakin University.
