“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.

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

Here are some of the reactions online:
