Facebook's New Anti-Bullying Tool
http://mashable.com/2011/03/10/facebook-anti-bullying/ Just thought I would share this link about the measures Facebook is taking to stop cyber-bullying. It relates really well to our discussion from a couple weeks ago where we talked about bullying online. One of the biggest tools they added is the option to choose to include a trusted authority figure, such as a teacher of parent, in an incident report. While this is a great option, I don't think it will make much of a difference. In order for this to be helpful in preventing bullying, kids must actually use this tool. I doubt that many would want to include an authority figure. What do you all think? Will it make a difference?
