“New year na new year and dami nang fake news (It’s a new year and there are still a lot of fake news),” he wrote.

“Please be careful and vigilant on social media. Tandaan natin kung gaano kadali gumawa ng pekeng balita o mag-imbento ng quote (Please remember how easy it is to create fake news and false quotes),” Sotto added.
