The latest in online safety and wellbeing from Facebook

in News

We are proud to work with Facebook across many areas of our organisation. While the social media behemoth often comes under scrutiny, they continue to work hard to ensure that its users – being a large proportion of the general public – can express themselves safely, with dignity. Here’s the latest in online safety and wellbeing from Facebook.

Safety tips for messenger

Facebook recently launched Safety Tips on Messenger to help you learn how to protect your privacy when online, what to do if you encounter something offensive, how to identify scams and more.

Wellbeing on Instagram

As part of their mission to make Instagram a source of reliable information, Facebook are using Guides on Instagram to help people find wellness-focused guide content all in one place. This content will help people connect with expert organisations and get valuable tips on maintaining wellbeing, managing anxiety and dealing with grief.

The latest community standards report

As part of their mission to keep Facebook and Instagram safe, private and authentic, Facebook developed Community Standards to define what is and is not permissible across the platforms. Their latest report reveals how hard their technology is working to combat offensive content.

Working with the Alannah & Madeline Foundation

Finally, we are proud to be working with Facebook on a new initiative with families called, This Digital Home. This creative social research project will enable us to get a better sense of what digital families look like in a post-pandemic world, and develop our programs to better ensure the safety and wellbeing of families going forward. Stay tuned for more on this exciting piece of work.
