The controversial website is moving to Dublin. Asking it to go elsewhere wouldn’t stop online abuse.
Social media ombudsman urged as controversial Ask.fm moves here. A social media ombudsman needs to be created to deal with cyberbullying and online abuse, a leading anti-bullying expert has claimed.
Thousands of people sign a petition asking the government to regulate anonymous messaging websites after a 14-year-old girl killed herself following bullying on Ask.fm.
The ability to place anonymous questions/comments enables users to be as nasty as they like because they face no consequences. Ask.fm is a dangerous little cyber-world that provides the perfect conditions in which bullying can flourish.
