A few years after the birth of the internet, the unprecedented phenomenon known as social networking sites was born from the simple idea of bringing those using the internet closer together.

In the business setting, more and more individuals and organizations are considering the use of these sites for business and commerce. Thus a shift in trend can be seen, where the brick-and mortar or traditional system of business has evolved to the use the internet to reach newer heights and consumers. The goal of this research is to determine if equivalence exists between users of the traditional means and the users of the modern means, in terms of protection under the law.

The law in question will be evaluated by means of local law and articles, with the help of foreign jurisprudence and research to shed light on this relatively new area of research in the Philippine legal system.

The study will determine whether or not those engaged in business using the internet, specifically social networking sites, are given the same rights and privileges under the E-commerce Act compared to their brick-and-mortar or traditional counterparts.
