Online safety on mind, Facebook launches Youth Portal for teens

Соцсеть Facebook запускает новый портал для обучения подростков

The portal is an expansion of a program Facebook has undertaken with teenagers recently. Facebook wants to be a part of the solution which is why it has now launched a new Youth Portal to provide tips to teens.

Facebook said that it consulted with an unspecified number of teenagers in the U.S., Italy, the United Kingdom, and Brazil in designing the new site. In the company's own words, the Youth Portal is home to "general tips, insider tricks, privacy and safety information, and everything else you need to have a great experience on Facebook".

"Before you post publicly, pause and ask yourself, 'Would I feel comfortable reading this out loud to my parents and grandparents?' There will always be people at your school who are social media oversharers (and adults in your life who are, too)".

Another recommendation is that teenagers not give out personal information to people they just met online and to only accept Facebook friend requests from people they know.

Facebook launches a Youth Portal for the Generation Z to demystify and educate them on all things Facebook.

With Facebook' s recent debacle on user data, the company has also ensured that the iGens are taken care of by introducing information on the types of data Facebook collects and how it use it.

"Earlier this month we started showing tips for teens in News Feed, like how to control who sees what on your profile, and links to the Bullying Prevention Hub", says the post.
