Facebook says no to panic button

Facebook today stopped short of introducing a panic button after meeting with the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (Register) centre. Instead it Register that existing links in the future will also report abuse to CEOP.

[Facebook] areone small stepaway from doing the right thing, said chief executive of CEOP Jim Gamble in response to the move.

The four hour discussion between Facebook and CEOP on Monday comes after calls for more security measures on the social networking site after the Register in the UK. The "panic button" proposed would allow younger users of the service to contact authorities such as CEOP or other anti-bulling support groups should they feel threatened.

Facebook's head of policy in Europe Richard Allen claimed the site is "one of the safest places on the internet". This after it became the Register last month.

Gamble did appear somewhat disappointed at Facebook's decision but remained positive about the future.
"I am more optimistic than when I came. They are not saying no, that is very clear. But they were equally direct and they came with their own agenda."
