WATCH: 100 student organizations start publishing on X
MANILA, Philippines – Despite being one of the oldest organizations in the Ateneo de Manila University, Gabay (Guide) easily embraced a new platform to share their advocacy of tutoring public elementary students on Tuesday, July 19.
In a post on X, Rappler's free self-publishing platform, Gabay external affairs vice president Veronica Baguio introduced the organization, sharing its desire to link up with other organizations that have similar causes.
"May mga proyekto ang Gabay na nakatuon sa pagpapayaman ng mga iskolar bilang mag-aaral at tao para sa kapwa, tulad ng mga tutoring sessions, sample exams at book-lending, seminars at formation sessions.”
(Gabay has projects focused on developing scholars both as students and men for others like tutoring sessions, sample examinations and book-lending, seminars, and formation sessions.)
Gabay is one of the first 100 student groups that have set up publisher accounts on X using the platform’s publication feature, a premium service for school papers and organizations as well as civil society groups.
The publication feature for X users was launched on Saturday, July 16 at the Rappler Newsroom in Pasig City.
@MovePH Executive Director Rupert Ambil to students: We are here to promote your advocacy. MovePH is the Uber of goodwill.— David Bryan Lozada (@iamdavidlozada) July 16, 2016
The feature is freely given to partners of MovePH, Rappler’s civic engagement arm. It enables organizations to create their own domains and allows them to invite writers and artists to post content under their site's banner on X.
The platform incorporates social media analytics and Rappler's patented user engagement model to help build the authors' online communities. It also allows authors to map their network using Reach, Rappler's proprietary network analysis and data tool.
"It’s easy to use,” said Baguio, adding that they are going to amplify their advocacy through the platform and link up with other similar organizations to scale up their initiatives. – Rappler.com
