Facebook Panic Button

Calls for a panic button grew in Britain after a 33-year-old convicted sex offender was jailed for the rape and murder of 17-year-old Ashleigh Hall, who he met on Facebook by pretending to be a teenage boy.  This optional application is advertised to Facebook for users particularly between the ages of 13 and 18.  It is designed to prevent predatory adults from “grooming” unsuspecting young people online.  There have been a total of 211 users that have used the button since July compared to 28 who used it the month before. The figures were reported by Britain’s Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre which provided the ClickCEOP application.   “There is no single answer to making the internet safer but CEOP have taken a great step forward by setting up their ClickCEOP page,” said Joanna Shields, Facebook’s VP for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.  “It now means that they can have an ongoing dialogue with thousands of Facebook users, educating them about how to stay safe online in a place and language they are familiar with.”
