Last week, Facebook unveiled their new and improved online Safety Center to help users get educated on how to avoid Internet threats. The safety center serves as a place to get helpful information, and has a specific section dedicated to helping teens learn about general and personal safety.
The social networking site worked with the "most trusted safety organizations" to offer advice on how to handle situations like cyberbullying, identity theft and harassment. It also provides tools on how to deal with potentially harmful content, and just how to be safe on the site overall. The new safety center can be accessed in the Help Center section under the Account tab.
"Safety is Facebook's top priority. Our most talented people are dedicated to creating an environment where people can connect and share comfortably," Facebook's blog says. "We've quadrupled the safety content available, and we've created cleaner, more navigable interfaces to help you find answers to safety questions fast."
While some may already know what to do in tough situations, there are plenty of people who have never experienced online dangers. It's great to have a place to find safety tips that don't just apply to Facebook, but can be helpful on when using other sites as well. What do you think of Facebook's new resource? %Poll-45014%
