Put a Stop to Bullying

Developed in partnership with bullying prevention experts, the Bullying Prevention Hub is a resource for educators and families seeking support for issues related to bullying and other conflicts. It offers step-by-step plans, including guidance on how to start important conversations for people being bullied, advice for parents and caregivers who have a child that’s being bullied or accused of bullying, and educators who have had students involved with bullying.

When it comes to bullying and harassment, context really matters. It’s hard to tell the difference between a bullying comment and a light-hearted jest without knowing the people involved or the nuance of the situation.

At Facebook, we take incidents of bullying and harassment very seriously and we use a combination of user reports and technology to find and remove this type of content. We’re always working on new tools, re-evaluating our policies and continually investing in detection technology to ensure we are proactively tackling the problem as best we can since we know how important it is to get this right. This strategy includes expert teams who review reports of bullying and harassment 24/7 in more than 50 languages and artificial intelligence technology that helped us take action on 8.8 million pieces of content and proactively remove over 54% of bullying content.

We also rely heavily on reports from our community. If you or someone you know is being bullied or harassed, visit the help center for details on how you can report it.

This hub was created in collaboration with the following organizations:

  • The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme
  • Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence
  • International Bullying Prevention Association
