Would that be you? Are you the world’s most globally networked individual?
With 470,000 locations in 200 countries and territories, Western Union is calling for the Philippines’ most globally connected individuals to step forward and take the Western Union Network Challenge at www.westernunionworld.com/yourworld.
“Western Union is giving Filipinos the opportunity to make a name for themselves in the global community,” said Patricia Riingen, Western Union Senior Vice President for Pacific & Indochina.
“Filipinos have come a long way, venturing out into strange lands, building their personal networks and immersing themselves in new cultures whilst maintaining strong ties with their family and friends back home.
“With the Philippines recently being hailed as ‘the social networking capital of the world’, having nine out of ten online Filipinos on Facebook , it also stands a strong chance of being one of the most geographically connected nations globally.”
