Facebook, Project RockiT and Headspace launch “Be Bold, Stop Bullying”


Be Bold, Stop Bullying

Love it or hate it, 55% of Australians use Facebook (not to mention other social networking sites). ABC radio recently reported that 1 in every 4 users of social networking sites is exposed to some form of abusive behaviour while online. Facebook is encouraging every Australian Facebook user to help stamp out bullying by standing up to bullies when they spot them.

The social networking giant now features a page and link where both adults and children can pledge to take action against bullying. The link also features a map showing where and how many people have signed the pledge.

Here’s the pledge on Be Bold, Stop Bullying for Students:

I will take a stand when I see young people humiliating or hurting each other,

I will not use my phone or computer to spread rumours or say hateful things, and I won’t ignore it when others are cruel and intimidating.

To make your stand, visit Facebook, search for the “Be Bold, Stop Bullying” page and pledge your support for this worthwhile movement.
