NoBullying.com addresses the controversy surrounding Ask.fm Bullying in an updated article released today.
The controversial Latvian anonymous question and answer website Ask.fm had announced stricter safety measures after calls for boycotting it went global following the suicide death of UK Teenager Hannah Smith at age 14 after her abuse on Ask.fm.
According to sources, Ask.fm called in law firm Mishcon de Reya to conduct an audit of the site and its safety features after the girl’s death.
Following the audit, Ask.fm said it will raise the visibility of the report button to opt out of receiving anonymous questions, hire more staff to moderate content on the site and create incentives for users to register in full instead of listing anonymous profiles that cannot be traced.
The article also discusses UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s call for a boycott of all websites that fail to tackle online abuse, Ask.fm being one of these sites.
