An initiative launched by Facebook and Snapchat to help children combat online bullying has resulted in no calls to a national helpline.
Facebook and Snapchat’s parent company Snap entered into a trial with the NSPCC last year to help young children on their sites who might be subjected to bullying.
Through this initiative, if someone reports that they are being bullied, they will see a message suggesting that they talk to Childline for support and advice. Choosing this option will launch more information and the option to speak to a counsellor.
No one wants to call childline? No one is being bullied? No one pays any attention to anything on Facebook or Snapchat?
Presumably the net step is to demand tax subsidy as it isn’t working.
