The UMB (Unit Media Baru) SPDP met with the President in anticipation of the upcoming general elections. The UMB team comprising SPDP bloggers and facebookers are all ready to dessimate information and also to fend off any misinformation and attacks from the opposition front.
There were a number of interesting questions which one blogger put to the President. Firstly,”President we know that your Facebook account has been hacked as reported by a local daily. Is it true?”
The answer,”Firstly I would like to thank the person who has taken the initiative to create a LIKE Page for me. Its a very good and supportive gesture towards me. Unfortunately,I musts stress that certain people have chosen to take advantage of this media to speak foul and say unkindly things which has been reported in the print/media,”been hacked and pasted with several nasty comments on certain Barisan Nasional people”
Facebook Mawan said has more than 800 million active users. I do keep tabs and very savvy friendly and thats why I am all for the UMB SPDP but it is not an appropriate way to abuse this social media technology. To prevent further misuse Mawan said that he has directed the UMB team to dessimate information to the cyberspace.
UMB SPDP as such would like to inform the cyberworld that the Presidents LIKE page
Tan Sri William Mawan Ikom
will/should not be taken as a page authorised/used by the SPDP President to inform SPDP members.The issue is closed and the FACEBOOK account will be closed soon. The President said,”Hopefully the authorised person who design and uploaded the page has not forgotten the PASSWORD. UMB might justs need to write to Mark Zuckerberg (CEO) ”
“haha laughter in the air“
President also told the UMB team that all relevant questions/functions should come from the party headquarters and UMB SPDP will also assist in informing the members.
Questions were also asked on SPDP after the internal misunderstandings/sacking and also the upcoming TDC in Bintulu on March 17th /18th 2012. The printmedia/blogsphere has written a lot on SPDP in the last few weeks and its time for the party to move onwards and gear itself for the General elections which is due very soon. We need to maintain and win comfortably all our 4 seats said the President to the UMB team.
We need to work as one and we will deliver our seats as expected. President has all hopes for the future of SPDP and he also spoke on the formation of the Puteri Wing which augurs very well for the party. UMB team thanked the President for his time and hope that this information which will be ‘blasted’ in the cyber world puts all stop to the FACEBOOK LIKE PAGE.
