People come to Facebook to connect with the people and things they care about. Bullying is certainly one of these issues. The Be Bold Stop Bullying campaign centres around an interactive social media pledge app that enables teens, parents and educators to make a personal commitment to help stop bullying and recruit their friends to join them.
