As cyberbullying grows, Facebook is taking action to by rolling out a new feature to its users.

The social media giant has seen many cases of cyberbullying over the years and has seen even more posts by people seeking help. Now, to show a different side to the internet Facebook is partnering with Now Matters Now, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, Save.org and Forefront: Innovations in Suicide Prevention to provide more options to users who see a friend post something concerning.

Now when a user sees a friend post something concerning they have the option to click on the little arrow on the top right of the post and click “Report Post” where they will be given options to contact the friend who made the post, contact another friend for support or contact a suicide helpline.

Facebook has had a feature to report potentially suicidal content since 2011 however, this is the first-time it has ever been integrated into the posts.
