Facebook is partnering with the National PTA to promote safe Internet use to kids, parents and teachers.

The goal of the partnership is to provide information, support and news to encourage citizenship online, cut down on cyberbullying and improve Internet safety and security.

The National PTA said it will use its website to reach out to the 24,000 local PTAs across the country with a goal of reaching every American public school. Facebook will raise awareness of resources for parents, teachers and children using its service on other parts of the site, including the safety center.


"Nothing is more important to us than the safety and well being of the people, especially the many teenagers, who use Facebook," says Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer of Facebook.

"Only through the constant and concerted effort of parents, teachers, law enforcement and industry can we keep kids safe and help them develop into tomorrow’s leaders. We are proud to be working with National PTA toward that goal."

Facebook and the PTA plan to consult with many child safety, education and technology experts to collect, build and maintain a set of multi-media education resources for the initiative.  The program will include input from Facebook’s global Safety Advisory Board as well.

    This is only one of the few positive feedbacks I’ve seen about Facebook. This article is very inspiring since there have been a lot of negative feedbacks about Facebook but they don’t realize that there are also some things that Facebook is doing to help out in the community. Safety of children is really important because you will not only be able to save the new generation but it will also make the future a safer place to live in. This is a really good move by the owner of Facebook and hopefully more of this project would come in the future.

    Thanks for sharing this!

    I think Facebook should have more security with respect to the images that are published.

    This post is a bit old, but I want to say something. I’m so glad Facebook is taking steps to help children. I think this is only one of the few positive actions I’ve seen about Facebook. It’s really worrying when sources like BBC states that 8-11 years old children from UK are on social networks.
