Facebook has launched new parent portal which aims to help adults to navigate their children through the social media site. Facebook Parents Portal keeps you aware of videos, tips, and advice to help spark conversations about online safety. The portal is a part of Facebook’s Safety Center and informs you about the firm’s safety policies, tools, and resources.
Keeping you and your information safe at each thing they do, Facebook compiles some basic tips and information to help you get the most out of your experience and help your child navigate theirs. With this portal, Facebook connects you with online safety organizations across the world which offer additional resources specifically for parents.
Facebook provides access only for users at least 13 years old and does not accept anyone younger. Bur for the ones below the age, Facebook Parents Portal, provides all sorts of resources and is available to users in over 55 languages. Step-by-step instructions were given to parents on how to sign up for the social media site.
“Keeping our community safe is core to everything we do. People will only come to Facebook if it’s a safe place to connect and share with the people they care. With the new Safety Centre and Parent’s Portal, we worked with safety experts and local partners to develop content that resonates with our community,” says, Ankhi Das, Facebook Public Policy Director (India, South and Central Asia).
Facebook claims many parents find this helpful to use the same social media apps and sites which their teens are using. This also deals with the underage accounts and blocking other users to maintain safety and privacy.
The social networking giant also ensures that the reported content will be removed if it is against standards. The platform mainly focuses on helping foster conversations between children and parents about online safety. It also offers a group of experts at fingertips to assist about certain policies or guidelines.
