Official 'Facebook' page of Malacanang Palace by Presidential Museum and Library launched Monday

The official Facebook page of Malacañan Palace by the Presidential Museum and Library was launched on Monday in advance of the sesquicentennial (150 years) of Malacañan Palace next year, a Palace official said. More details after the jump.

"Dubbed 'Malacañan Palace' the Facebook page features a rich heritage from its beginnings as a riverside rest house owned by the Rocha family to its establishment as the seat of power where Spanish and American Governors-General held office, and as the official residence of the presidents of the Philippines," Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said in a statement during the regular press briefing in Malacanang on Monday.

Published in conjunction with the Presidential Museum and Library website (www.malacanang.gov.ph) and the Presidential Museum and Library Tumblr account (tumblr.malacanang.gov.ph), Lacierda said these online resources are part of the mandate of the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office (PCDSPO) as official custodian of the institutional memory of the Office of the President.

Lacierda said the initiative is aimed at harnessing social media to share the history, residents, traditions, and legacy of Malacañan Palace to a diverse online audience.

Through Facebook, Lacierda said the citizens online can contribute their own pictures and memories of the Palace thereby harnessing the Internet as a space for remembering.

"This way, Malacañan Palace is opened to the public through inclusive and people-centric social media," he said.

As of Monday, the Malacañan Palace page already has 3,408 likes which is indicative of a strong interest in the project.
