 Gretchen, Alex, Karla, Melai, Jolina, and more join Sharea community  

The COVID-19 crisis has made Filipinos dependent on social media to find out about information they need – from open stores, commuter updates, to discounts, and deals.  

Even the country’s celebrities are on the lookout for reliable information, with some of them already joining the community of netizens exchanging information with one another using the public service app Sharea.

Among them are ABS-CBN News personality Gretchen Ho, comedian Alex Calleja, and “Magandang Buhay” hosts Melai Cantiveros-Francisco, Karla Estrada, and Jolina Magdangal-Escueta.

“It provides verified and hyperlocal community information on things that we need especially during this pandemic – health, safety, transportation, available jobs, volunteer work, deals and discounts, and ganaps,” Gretchen tweeted her experience. 

Alex meanwhile joked that he likes Sharea because it isn’t ‘toxic’ and that it’s ‘user-friendly’ (walang kahirap-hirap). 

“Nakapagat labi ako kasi hindi toxic kaya fantastic. Good vibes lang at very helpful. Download mo na ang app dahil walang kahirap-hirap. Who knows, baka nandito ang iyong hinahanap,” Calleja said in his Facebook post.  

In a video, “Momshie” Jolina also encouraged Filipinos to participate in the online bayanihan using the app.

“Layunin nito na itaguyod ang pagtutulungan ng bawat isa. Pwede ka rin maka-konek sa mga users malapit sa ‘yo para naman buhay na buhay ang bayanihan kahit pa may pandemya,” she explained.

A Filipino-made app, Sharea enables users to view reliable information on its Bulletin Board that are customized based on their chosen location or area, which is very useful considering that quarantine protocols highly encourage citizens to stay at home. 

Users can also share and find out more about what’s happening in their barangays in the Community Wall. They can also share with each other information on job postings or side hustles, water or power interruptions, list of bayad centers, restaurants that are open, and more through the Messaging feature.

Other stars that have posted about the app or invited their followers to download the app and join the Sharea community include Angel Locsin, Daniel Padilla, Liza Soberano, Enrique Gil, Maymay Entrata, Robi Domingo, Jimuel Pacquiao, ABS-CBN entertainment reporter Ganiel Krishnan, and veteran journalist Karen Davila.
