“Mag-intrams sa Intramuros.”

Witty Facebook events with wordplay on people or places are suddenly taking over the timelines of online users in the Philippines.

Facebook Events is a feature on the platform that allows users to create a calendar-based invitation to an event.

It can be sent to a select group of people and will include information about the event, including the time, date, location and related images.

Filipinos are among the most active Facebook users in the world.

DataReportal said that there are at least 91.9 million active users in the platform from the Philippines as of April 2023.
