Create an Anti-Bullying Campaign using Facebook Pages
Tackle bullying in your school with an Anti-Bullying campaign. This FREE guide gives you step by step instructions on how to use Facebook in your school to engage students in social action online.
What is Facebook Pages?
Pages are for businesses, brands and organisations to share their stories and connect with people. Like Facebook profiles, you can customise Pages by publishing stories, hosting events, giving advice and more. Any person who likes your Page, including that person’s friends, will get updates in their news feed of any new content posted on the relevant Page. You can create and manage a Page from a Facebook account. You can have numerous people managing your Page and can also set different permissions for each person depending on their involvement in the Page.
How can Facebook Pages benefit my school?
