Facebook announces 'Youth Portal' for teenager safety

Facebook has launched Youth Portal, a resource centre aimed at teenagers that will guide them with tips and tricks on how to use the portal.

The portal will also serve as an advice giver seeing as it will let the teens know what to do when they need a social media break, and some guidelines for how to get the most out of the internet.

"The portal will also educate them on security, reporting content, and deciding who can see what you share", said Antigone Davis, Global Head of Safety and Karuna Nain, Global Policy Programs Manager at Facebook in a press statement.

Youth Portal has been described by Facebook as a central place for teens through which they can get information on how to get the most out of Pages, Groups, Profile, and Events.

Unlike the NES Classic , the SNES Classic bundles in two controllers so multiple players can participate straight out of the box. After months of immediately selling out whenever it came in stock, the NES Classic was discontinued by Nintendo in April 2017.

Some of the information that the Youth Portal provides includes safety tips for teenagers to adhere to when posting on Facebook.

"Before you post publicly, pause and ask yourself, 'Would I feel comfortable reading this out loud to my parents and grandparents?' There will always be people at your school who are social media oversharers (and adults in your life who are, too)".

The portal also has a dedicated section for data privacy. But both of those descriptions link to the company's longer and more complicated explanations intended for the general public.

Facebook has come out with a new product for its user group comprising teenagers. Earlier this month, as a test, it started showing some of the tips to an unspecified number of teens in their News Feeds.
