Facebook Installs Panic Button Today

by David Brooks | 12.07.2010
Facebook has announced it is to launch a “panic button” application on its social networking site.

The button, aimed at children and teenagers, will report abuse to the UK Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre  and Facebook.

The application will also appear on their homepage to say that “they are in control online”.

The launch follows months of negotiation between Ceop and Facebook, which initially resisted the idea.
