With constant popularity and acceptance of Top rated Social Networking website “Facebook“, more and more age groups are turning towards this across the globe. Since Facebook is open for all gae group people, there are good number of people between age group 12 – 18 for whom security and data screening is a big challenge for Facebook these days. In order to address this Facebook is ready to launch Child Safety application called “Panic Button”

The bottom aimed at Children and teenagers will be available at the home page and will report for abuse to Child exploitation and Online Protection Centre (Ceop) as well Facebook administrative authority. In recent past Facebook has already been criticized for its policies and security issues. With launch of Panic Button Facebook will not only gain confidence in parents towards their children but also will be available further more openly to many teenagers and children now.

The launch follows months of negotiation between Ceop and Facebook, which initially resisted the idea.

Ceop, the government law enforcement agency tasked with tracking down online sex offenders, called for a panic button to be installed on social networking sites last November.

Bebo became the first network to add the button with MySpace following suit, but Facebook resisted the change, saying its own reporting systems were sufficient.

Pressure mounted on Facebook following the rape and murder of 17-year-old Ashleigh Hall by a 33-year-old convicted sex offender, posing as a teenage boy, who she met on Facebook.
