Facebook Safety Center

April 19th, 2011 by Brian Leave a reply »

Facebook is adding more features to its Safety Center to allow students to report bullying not only to Facebook employees but also to someone in their network. Those people in their network will be more capable of addressing issues in the face-to-face world.

There will also be a teacher’s guide coming out written by Linda Fogg Phillips, B.J. Fogg, and Derek Baird to help educators stay current on social media. The best way to stay updated is to use it yourself, but hopefully this will be a bridge for adults who lack technological confidence.

Many times the bullying online is a sign of trouble offline, so, like always, the best practice for teachers is to know your students and watch for signs of bullying.
