Facebook also announced they’ll be hosting roudtables around the world to continue learning about how young people use Facebook, expanding their safety advisory board to focus on reducing instances of bullying in schools, and working with lawmakers as well as privacy experts to design tools that give teens the information they need to stay safe online.
