Sara Duterte-Carpio

PAGADIAN, Zamboanga del Sur – Even the Facebook account of Hugpong ng Pagbabago founder and chairman Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte was taken down.

This was confirmed by Mayor Duterte in an interview here before proceeding to the campaign rally here.

“Nakita ko na locked out na ang account even before the purging of 200 accounts, nauna pa,” the presidential daughter confirmed

However she said “hindi naman ako nagrereklamo kasi wala din ako masyadong time mag-Facebook,” she told the media covering the HNP sortie.

Facebook is an online social media site.

According to her staff, Duterte’s account was “one of the casualties of the Facebook purge” after her account was “heavily reported.” 

In a Facebook notice shared by Duterte’s camp, Facebook informed Sara that her account is temporarily locked. 

“We’ve locked your account because someone recently tried to log in from an unfamiliar location. Please help us confirm that it was you who tried to log in,” Facebook advised Mayor Duterte. 

Her staff added that Duterte’s last post was in March but it was   only because her Facebook account was connected to her Instagram account.

Posts from Instagram are automatically shared to a Facebook timeline if a person allowed Instagram to share posts on Facebook.
