  50. There are over 70M mobile phones in the Philippines. An estimated 26M Filipinos access the Internet
  51. If there 12M Filipinos on Facebook, the phrase "You can use Facebook on your phone" could be the key to increasing mobile internet users from less than 5M to at least 12M.
  52. “Internet for All” - using the mobile phone as a vehicle... .... May become more of a reality because of mobile social media.
  53. Thank you :-)
