Incoming Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) chief Martin Andanar revealed he is in talks with officials of social networking site Facebook for the possible streaming of all official events, starting with his inauguration at the end of the month.

"I’m meeting with the guys from Facebook. They’re flying over and they’re offering, they’re proposing to stream the entire event, the entire inaugural," he told ANC's Headstart on Friday.

Andanar said this move is to keep up with the changing times, noting that President-elect Rodrigo Duterte in fact benefited from the strong support base among Facebook users.

This planned cooperation with Facebook, he added, will continue until after the inauguration.

"I will propose to the president that after the inaugural, thereafter, all of the briefings, all of the presidential briefings and announcements should be streamed on Facebook."
