PRESS RELEASE: SOCIAL MEDIA FIGHT BACK ON CYBER BULLYING
AUSTRALIA: It is nearing epidemic proportions with the number of children in both primary and high schools begin bullied on a daily basis. Social Media is pivotal in the wide spread affect children and teenagers are exposed to — day in day out.
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and a strew of other social applications tolerate a significant quantity of bully-behaviour. But, how much is too much? Topicthread is fighting back for those with a voice, not being heard. A zero-tolerance policy for all. Sure, “free speech” is common place in the world of social, but there are lives at risk — meanwhile a stance is yet to be taken.
Protecting those who aren’t being heard
Isn’t it atrocious enough that cyber bullying is mainstream? Whether you’re dealing with a troll as an adult, or a spiteful child, or teen, with hateful words, enough is enough. They do know better — child, teen or adult. Topicthread stands for protection over “freedom of speech” — so if a child/teen/adult is protected from harm at the consequence of disallowing hateful speech, so be it.
It’s time for a genuine social application without the hate
No advertising. No harm. Health access. Education access. A safe place to call home online. That’s what Topicthread delivers.
