Online safety on mind, Facebook launches Youth Portal for teens

Facebook

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.
