NTC advises Pinoys to send Christmas Messages early, try Facebook and Twitter

Manila, Philippines – The National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) has advised Pinoy consumers to send their Christmas messages early, as well as greetings for New Year, and also to try social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.

As being reported on local news, NTC’s advisory to Pinoys to send holiday greetings earlier is to avoid clogging of lines and delay of receiving text messages. The same advice is also applicable to cell phone calls.

“Filipinos send from 400 to 500 million text messages on a regular day, and typically increase to about 1.6 billion to 2 billion text messages on Christmas Eve and on the last day of the year, New Year’s Eve.” NTC spokesman Paulo Arceo told ABS-CBN News recently.

Apparently, Filipinos are known to be waiting for December 24 and 25, and December 31 and January 1 before they send holiday greetings to their friends and loved ones, which lead to slower traffic of messages.

Meanwhile, NTC also suggest that more Pinoys should try joining social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, especially in sending Christmas messages this year.

Incidentally, SocialBaker’s data shows that nearly 20 million Filipinos are Facebook users as of this writing, and landed on the 6th spot as the most users in the world.

Last November 2010, Philippines landed on the 9th place as top growing countries in Facebook with 4.11% increase compared to last month.
