As part of the new season of iWantTFC’s Click, Like, Share, Vivoree Esclito said she is aware of the benefits and dangers of social media. With scammers aplenty online, the 21-year-old actress counts herself lucky that she has not experienced being scammed online or fallen victim to identity theft.

“Hindi directly. Alam mo yung ibang tao yung nakaranas pero involved pa rin ako indirectly in a way. Like let’s say ginamit yung pangalan ko to scam other people and I think it’s just as [bad] as being scammed directly. Kasi siyempre naloloko yung ibang tao tapos ginagamit pa yung pangalan mo just to scam other people. It’s very unfortunate na ginagawa yun ng mga tao yung pag-scam ng ibang tao. At the same time maybe they’re also going through a difficult time. But I hope that people will realize and learn that that’s not the solution to it. We all need to resort to good ways kasi it’s going to be a domino reaction that if you scam someone it’s going to continue for a very long time. Sana talaga hindi na siya mag-prevail pa in the coming times,” she explained.

As a celebrity, Vivoree said being part of fake news can be expected already, but the difference is in how you react to it.

“I think being in this industry, kind of normal na yung mga fake news na parang sisiraan ka ng mga tao na hate na hate ka for no reason. There are times lalo na before na parang they spread fake news about me na hindi talaga nila alam yung tunay na side ko which is sobrang unfortunate. Kasi nangyayari talaga siya outside showbiz like kahit sa work, sa school. May mga paninira pa rin na nangyayari. But we just have to rise to the occasion and let’s learn from that na sana hindi na mangyari ang paninira. I just hope that we all lift each other up instead of bringing each other down,” she added.

For those who have bad experiences online, Vivoree shared some simple advice. 

“Pagdaanan mo lang. If nasasaktan ka, masaktan ka. okay lang na maging malungkot. Pagdaanan mo yung kailangan mo maramdaman and talk to someone kasi may mga bagay talaga na we can’t do it alone. So open up to people you trust especially your family and always pray and ask for guidance and strength kay God kasi kahit nga wala akong masabihan na ibang tao siya talaga kinakausap ko and that made me strong,” she advised.

During the Click, Like, Share media conference, Vivoree also discussed how everyone —not just celebrities—can avoid being victimized online.

“You just have to be careful talaga not to disclose our personal information and siyempre gawan natin ng paraan, let’s also ask for help from other people to trace yung mga tao na nang-biktima kasi bad pa rin yung ginawa nila kahit na yung intentions are for yung personal na may mga kailangan nila or what. Let’s be more vigilant and not disclose our personal information. Always ask for help kasi there are times there are things we can’t do by ourselves. Spread awareness din to other people as well na ito yung nangyari sa akin para everyone can be aware din sa mga ganung bagay para hindi siya mangyari sa ibang tao,” she explained.
