Facebook don't have any cyberbullying support

Facebook still aren't offering its users support if they are affected by cyberbullying and abuse. Why do you think this is? Facebook seems to be where most of the bullying is happening, surely they have a responsibility to provide support to the victims? They have a few weird organisations they work with but these seem to be more PR type partnerships with no real work being done.

Palming the problem off is not good enough when billions are being made from our data. Facebook should have a lot more in the way of support for the victims of bullying, abuse and identity theft. They can't just hold up their hands and say it's not their problem.

I hear that! Facebook are evil! My generation are getting wise to Facebook and are moving to other platforms, they are having a real problem with the teen market. Facebook is dying a death - forget the hype about all the daily users because they are not new, young users. They need to admit to the problem they have, Facebook is the home of cyberbullying. It won't be long before their investors realise they are being help up by hype and are actually a high risk investment.

They just wheel out the freedom of speech train and shrug their shoulders. Its not good enough when lives are ruined by social media sites. Facebook should show more responsibility and be held accountable for what goes on.

Yes, Facebook may be a cruel social media. I only use it for talking with friends and for being informed. I never comment at anything, no matter if it's a friend's post or public one. I don't join groups, unless they are known to me.

Google+ is a safe social media, and to be honest, I never experienced anything bad on it. I discuss and comment on gaming communities without a worry. It is also full of moderators.

Shame you feel like you cant talk openly and safely on Facebook. It used to be a great place to hang out and catch up with people but it has changed into something that young people just don't trust anymore. Seems like Zuckburger has sold out in more ways than one.

Yes, it has changed a lot. Trolls and pressure commenters everywhere. I had two cases with cyberbullying on Facebook, but I ignored them.
Zuckburger? Haha!

In the past week, I've decided to change the way I deal with Facebook. I used to put up posts on a "political hot potato" topic. I have to stop. I find that's where most of the issues take place within my circle.

Also, be aware that Facebook DOES allow for private/secret groups. I belong to one to discuss specific issues pertaining to my upbringing. It is closely monitored by the group founder for trolling and has a list of rules that you have to agree to follow before you are admitted. And it is hidden from public view ... so you join by finding this person's blog initially, then sending her an email, then exchanging an email about why you want to be admitted, THEN she approves you, then it's up to you to "join" the group ... and no one in your circle can see that you're in it or that it even exists. It's perfect if you need to vent in a healthy way.

Probably the best rule of thumb for Facebook is not to post anything that will attract bullies or trolls ... and if you have something nagging at you, find a supportive "secret" group where the comments are handled with compassion and without judgment. It's tough, but doable. I will say, it's extremely helpful for me personally.
