Fans of famous Facebook parody page, Senyora, cannot stay silent of the decision of the page’s shut down. They believe there is some conspiracy behind since the page is believed to be influential on the outcome of the last Philippine elections.
Political analyst and blogger, Sass Rogando Sasot, started a petition to restore Senyora’s page now that it has been confirmed that it is in danger to be permanently deleted. She encourages everyone to write to Katie Harbath, Global Politics and Government Outreach Director at Facebook, with a sample message below:
Dear Ms Harbath,
I would like to ask you to reinstate the Facebook Page of SENYORA, url: https://www.facebook.com/SenyoraOfficial/
SENYORA is a parody site in the Philippines that has been recently mass reported. SENYORA has brought joy and laughter to millions of Filipinos since it was created in 2013. Because the Page is such a hit, a publisher even compiled SENYORA’s posts into a book entitled “Lakompake,” published last year (http://www.nationalbookstore.com/…/lakompake-ang-babaeng-bu…).
I believe that SENYORA has been targeted because it’s a Page that openly supports Duterte. This is definitely a POLITICALLY MOTIVATED mass report as SENYORA is one of the biggest Duterte Supporter FB Pages in the Philippines, with over 2 million followers.
The online petition has generated more than 4 thousand Facebook reactions, 1.6 thousand shares, and 800 comments within 3 hours.
Katie Harbath’s Facebook page has been swarmed by petitioners on the comment sections of any of her posts.
That is for the comment sector alone. I wonder how her personal mail looks like.
Will Facebook listen to their users or will they believe those who are behind Senyora’s page deletion?
