Social media giant Facebook has partnered with Save the Children Fiji to educate young Fijians on online safety.
The campaign was launched yesterday and includes personalized public awareness messages that showcase the dangers and best use of the internet.
Online Security Commissioner Anne Dunn-Baleilevuka said Facebook complaints were difficult to compensate because the company had no presence in Fiji.
“There are no Facebook employees in Suva, but almost every Fijian is on Facebook. The Commission receives disturbing reports almost every day, and the tools we have available make it difficult to secure social media users. “
Child Minister Mereseini Vuniwaqa said children were exposed to adult content and even violent pornography if parents did not watch their internet use.
“Check the browsing history of children frequently and consistently. Go one step further and look for solutions to filter what our kids can access on the internet. “
Facebook is the most used social media platform in Fiji.
