WHILE it continues to wait for the executive order that will formalize its creation, Malacañang’s Presidential Communications Group is now working on setting up a website and accounts on social networking site Facebook and Twitter.
On Saturday, Communications Group official Herminio Coloma said this is aside from the “traditional” text and voice hotlines that will accommodate feedback from the public.
“We will set up Facebook and Twitter accounts aside from our text and call lines. We want to make sure all channels of communication, traditional or not, can be used to make the Palace accessible to the people.”
Coloma added that provincial stations and offices of government media outlets, including state-run National Broadcasting Network, will be tapped to get feedback from the public.
President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III had ordered the creation of the communications group to not only disseminate information about the government’s plans but also to get feedback from people.
But the Palace has yet to announce the mechanics of the communications group. Coloma admitted there are some kinks still being ironed out.
“The executive order is still being finalized. Kinks in the restructuring are still being ironed out. Let’s wait for tings to work out,” he said. (JMR/Sunnex)
