Gone are the days when most people dismiss their parents as digitally challenged. In fact, the modern Filipina nanay is digitally savvy, according to the 2015 Annual Asian Digital Mom Survey, conducted by theAsianparent.com. She’s very much familiar with Google, as she actively searches for tips and other useful information online. She also knows her way around Facebook and various forums, as she’s really active not only on social media but on other online communities as well.
So, how is the truly Modern Filipina nanay like? Here are three things that would definitely give you an idea:
1. She’s Internet savvy.
The modern Filipina nanay is very much familiar with the Internet, and out of the six cuntries (specifically (Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, and India) surveyed by the theAsianparent.com, she’s the most active mom when it comes to Facebook and other online communities.
2. She’s digitally connected–almost 24/7!
