“Do not share anything na talagang, that is you know a private, ‘no? Na… common sense lang na hindi dapat i-share…because of the cybercrime law,” Rio said.

“Yes, yes, yung mag-share. Nasa cybercrime law, di ba nga kung mag-like ka lang eh, minsan may liability ka na rin?” he added.

Rio also mentioned that ignorance of the law does not excuse anyone from being held liable for a particular violation.

“Ignorance of that law, pag di mo alam na mayroon pa lang punishment na mag-like lang o mag-share, does not excuse you, ikaw ay mahuhuli diyan,” he said.
