Facebook Gets "Panic Button"

"Facebook now has a so-called 'panic button' available on its site whose intended purpose is to allow users to report cyberbullying, hacking attempts, harmful content, unwanted sexual advances and other forms of abuse to the U.K.'s Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP), the organization behind the button's launch.

According to the BBC news, the launch is a victory that came about after months of negotiation between CEOP and the social networking site. Says Jim Gamble, CEOP's chief executive. ' a good day for child protection.'"
