Education: Information on how to get the most out of products like Pages, Groups, Events, and Profile, while staying safe. The Youth Portal will provide tips on reporting content, security, and deciding who can see the content they share as well.

Facebook has created an online resource center for teenagers to learn tips and tricks for using the social networking service.

Last but not the least, they can even look to the portal for advice on what to do if they feel like they need a break from social media and general guidelines on how to make the most of their time on the internet. Earlier this month, as a test, it started showing some of the tips to an unspecified number of teens in their NewsFeeds. As well, the company says it plans to hold additional roundtables over the next several months to further build on the portal.

With a special emphasis on online safety of teens, Facebook has recently taken on its Safety Advisory Board the Project Rockit, which is an organisation dedicated to tackling bullying in school communities.

This work builds on our existing programs with Skuola.net, Diana Award, Childnet, SaferNet, Learning Links Foundation.
