Facebook have launched a new portal aimed at improving online safety for children.
The Parent's Portal features new resources for parents to help foster conversations among parents and their children.
The hub is the latest safety measure introduced by the company which also updated their Facebook Safety Centre that was launched in November.
The Safety Centre informs people of the privacy tools Facebook offers as well as providing guidance and resources for safe and secure sharing.
The Parent's Portal is there to educate parents on how Facebook works including tips for talking with children about staying safe online as well as access to resources from experts around the world.
Simon Grehan from Webwise the Irish Internet Safety Awareness Centre which is co-funded by the Department of Education and Skills and the EU Safer Internet Programme said, “In every aspect of development, from learning to cross the road, ride a bike or swim, parents teach, guide and support their children. It should be no different when it comes to their online lives. The new Parent’s Portal from Facebook is a valuable resource for parents to assist them in ensuring their children have a safe, positive online experience.”
