Facebook has a good sense of keeping people's awareness on important holidays for all of its users around the world. However, what Facebook did early today has ruined the commemoration of the Philippine Independence Day .
Millions of Filipino netizens expressed their disappointments on social media regarding the error of Facebook when it displayed the inverted Philippine flag on the user's news feed.

The greeting that goes "Happy Independence Day" immediately received criticism and has sparked debates on the internet. Other users simply shrugged off the incident but there were some who were really angry to Facebook. In a certain post, a netizen said "Mark Zuckerberg is pro-China and has been courting the Chinese government for years to have Facebook whitelisted from the Great Firewall of China that's why he is taking side on these communist government over the Philippines since he has a huge interest in that territory."
