Facebook helps children to fight cyber bullying in UK schools

LONDON (Reuters) – Facebook said on Monday it would fund young “digital safety ambassadors” in every secondary school in Britain to help students tackle cyber bullying and other online dangers.

The U.S company is partnering charities The Diana Award and Childnet International to train young people to act as mentors in 4,500 schools over the next two years, it said.

Facebook’s head of global safety policy Antigone Davis said the social network had already developed safety features on the platform, such as online reporting tools, and it was now taking that commitment offline.

“We’ve heard from kids that actually three out of four of them would prefer to talk to somebody their own age about these issues, so giving young people the skills they need to be that kind of a mentor is really important to us,” she said.

Nearly all cases of cyber bullying were linked to people known

UK wants to tax Twitter and Facebook in the fight against cyber-bullying

UK ministers said today Facebook and Twitter could be asked to pay a levy for the “undeniable suffering” they have caused amongst young people.

Culture secretary Karen Bradley suggested an “industry-wide levy,” where social media companies and service providers fund campaigns to raise awareness of the dangers of the internet, amongst other proposals. She also indicated she wants social media platforms to reveal the scale of online hate found on their websites in order to take a more direct approach towards these issues.
