Facebook has launched a new anti-bullying page to help raise awareness during Bullying Prevention month.

The social networking site announced the launch to "build on our commitment to keep people safe online by offering new and existing resources in one convenient location."

Added to their Family Safety Center, Facebook says the page will help users understand the specific actions people can take on the site to prevent bullying.

"We are also standing with the Ad Council as it launches its bullying prevention advertising campaign on TV, in print and online," Facebook says.

"We are deeply integrating the Ad Council content into our Stop Bullying: Speak Up program, now in its second year with more than a million “likes” and more than 140,000 young people and adults who have taken the pledge to be more than a bystander."
