Facebook's CEOP abuse button 'a success'

More than 200 Facebook users have reported suspicious behaviour online since the launch of an anti-abuse application last month, according to new figures. Investigators saw more than a seven-fold increase in the number of reports from the social networking site since the launch of the safety button aimed at protecting children from bullying, suspected grooming and other abuse.

A total of 211 people used the site's ClickCEOP button to report abuse since July 12, compared with just 28 users who reported abuse through the site in the month before its launch. In all, Facebook users downloaded the application more than 55,000 times in its first month, leading to more than 20,000 people getting regular online safety updates and more than 5,000 accessing help, advice and support, the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (Ceop) Centre said.

Facebook finally launches panic button for kids’ safety

Facebook has finally launched its much-anticipated 'panic button' on its site, as the social networking giant looks to increase protection of its young users. The ‘ClickCEOP’ button lets Facebook users (especially those aged between 13 and 17) report suspicious online behaviour and access internet safety advice with the launch of the new application.

They can report any abuse to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (Ceop) and Facebook. Access to the ClickCEOP button will be provided via an application that users can add or bookmark so that it appears on their homepage as not only a constant source of help and reassurance for them but also as a strong visual signal to their friends, family and others that they are in control online.

Facebook debuts £5m safety campaign- but refuses to add panic button

Facebook will not add a safety button on each user’s profile page, despite calls from a leading UK child protection agency, saying they would ‘confuse and intimidate’ users. Instead it will run a £5m safety campaign including a 24-hour police hotline. The move comes after a lengthy four-hour meeting in Washington with the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) and Facebook’s chief security officer, Joe Sullivan.

Facebook stopped short of adding a CEOP safety button to each user’s profile page, but did announce a raft of new safety measures which it believes will be more effective in protecting children’s safety online. Instead of the button, UK users under the age of 19 will now be able to click on the ‘Report abuse’ link on each page and have the option to report the abuse directly to CEOP as well as to Facebook employees.
