Facebook updates anti-bullying features
According to CNN, social-networking giant Facebook has taken now even further steps to safeguard its underage users against bullying. The company announced on Wednesday that new features have been rolled out as to how teens can ‘report’ problematic things they may see on their feeds.
For instance, if a 14 year old boy [at that age, problems always arise] spies something that he didn’t like or is problematic on the site than a new option specifically made for that ‘under the report button/option’ is now available for use which will provide quick communication to Facebook’s staff.
The new option includes a set/range of questions that a user will have to go through to successfully provide information to Facebook about the problematic post, and wait for it, Facebook even wants to know how that post made the user feel so they can take proper action
