Facebook agrees to adopt a panic button aimed at improving the online safety of its younger users

Social networking website, Facebook, has agreed to adopt a panic button aimed at improving the online safety of its younger users.

According to a child protection group, Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP), says the launch of button, which follows its long campaign, will allow children and teenagers to report suspicious behaviour and get help, advice and support about staying safe online.

"We know from speaking to offenders that a visible deterrent could protect young people online," says Jim Gamble, chief executive of CEOP, adding that the button should provide reassurance to parents whose teenagers use the site.
