Facebook Launches Panic Button For 13 - 18 Year Olds


After months of pressure from the British Child Exploitation and Online Protection organization (CEOP), Facebook has launched an application called ClickCeop. The application simply links to the Ceop report abuse page which enables victims of Cyberbullying, hacking, online sexual abuse, and more to report it directly to the police. While the button is not being implemented site-wide, as described by the BBC, it’s a being hailed as a big step forward after months of resistance from Facebook.
