Bongbong Marcos taps Franco Mabanta as social media director


(UPDATED) Former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. is now a vlogger backed by an internet celebrity.

Marcos is apparently trying to boost his social media presence by launching a weekly vlog. He has tapped internet star Franco Mabanta to help produce interesting and creative digital content every week.

The first episode, which highlighted Marcos’ poll protest against Vice President Leni Robredo, was released early this week.

“Once a week, every week, all throughout 2018. It’s time to see the man for what he really is,” a Facebook post of Marcos read.

Mabanta also commented on his new project with Marcos via Facebook.

“Setting the stage for the Marcos name every week all throughout 2018. I’m sick of propaganda. I want reality. I want truth. And, on Facebook, that shift starts today,” he said.
