Facebook adds ‘Philippines, Province of China’ as option for check-in location

-

“It happened.” A post online read upon seeing that Facebook has now added ‘Philippines, Province of China’ in its option for location check-in.

The option is also available on Instagram, which is owned by Facebook.

The options is available through the geotagging, a process of adding geographical identification metadata to various media such as geotagged photograph or video, websites, SMS messages, QR codes, or RSS feed and a form of geospatial metadata.

Some Filipinos find this ‘insulting’ and embarassing.

The relationship of the Philippines with China has suffered due to the worsening South China Sea dispute.

Here are some of the reactions online:
