Pennsylvania Attorney General teams with Facebook in online safety campaign
HARRISBURG - Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane has joined 18 other state attorneys general in a new online safety campaign with the popular social networking site, Facebook.
The initiative, which was formally unveiled at the National Association of Attorneys General's Presidential Summit on "Privacy in the Digital Age," provides teenagers and parents with tips and resources to better manage the information they share - and with whom they share it - both on Facebook and the Internet.
Attorney General Kane joined with Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg in taping a public service announcement entitled, "What You Can Do to Control Your Information," which addresses top questions about privacy bullying prevention and general Internet safety. A copy of AG Kane's public service announcement is available at http://vimeo.com/user14100391/review/64205091/03aa64cf6a.
Although the awareness campaign targets young people, the online privacy resources can be utilized by all consumers. The effort also includes a privacy tip sheet and an "Ask the Safety Team" video series, where Facebook will answer users' questions. Both can be found at www.facebook.com/fbsafety.
