Meet the Facebook Safety Team
There are a ton of people who work on safety at Facebook. So I think it really starts with the members of our user operations team who are on the front lines responding to people's concerns about safety or questions about safety. It's the engineers who are building the products who take into account the specific needs of minors when building things. It's our site integrity teams who build tools like social reporting that allow people to report abuse both to Facebook and to someone in their community who might be able to help them. And these people work around the clock and around the globe. Everybody who is working on this is really passionate about the people who use the site. And I think it's a great responsibility and a privilege to be able to support them. And all of us spend time thinking, as parents – which I am, as friends, about the people that we interact with in our lives. And as we think through these things, we try to make sure that we think about them, and the people using the site. As someone who has been involved in safety online for fifteen years, I've seen such an evolution on the Internet. Where it was truly an anonymous place, where people thought that they could act in ways that they couldn't offline. And maybe there still are places on the Internet like that, but Facebook is unique in that we're trying to create that well-lit environment where you interact with real people. I think a lot of parents – who didn't grow up with this media – really want to understand, "how do I approach these issues?" with my kids, when I don't have the same understanding of it that they do. This is a unique situation where the child can play a leadership role in the relationship. And that is really fun and rewarding for the child. But they are so used to their parent saying, "Do it this way, do it this way, I've been doing it for thirty years and this is the way we do it." It's really empowering for a parent to say to a child, "Help me set up my Facebook account , and you teach me how to use Facebook." The research suggests that a lot of kids really do know privacy settings and they understand how to use them. But it's important for parents to be part of that conversation. A lot of the messages that we give to our kids in the context of parenting like, "Don't talk to strangers," or, "Reach out to me if you need help." Don't accept friend requests from people that you don't know. If something is bothering you, yes, report it to Facebook. But I'm here too, and I can try to help you navigate that problem. And every website online is different. And so in the same way that every time you walk out the front door of your house, you have to think about your surroundings. And make judgement calls about how you act, you have to do that on the Internet too. And while the website creates a social experience on the back-end we really are a technology company. And that means we have hundreds of engineers, who are thinking through, how do we create a safe environment? And what can we do behind the scenes to flag the bad stuff, use technology to remove it really quickly. So we have systems that protect against spam, bad messages getting to users, we have systems that protect against accounts getting compromised. We have features that users can adopt to help them protect their accounts, as well as having systems that detect for unusual activity. We have features that users can adopt to help them protect their accounts , as well as having systems that detect for unusual activity. And if we ever find that we stopped a bad person from trying to get into your account from getting in. Part of stopping bad behavior is promoting consequences whether it is disabling an account and not letting you come back on the service or engaging law enforcement in something that merits that level of serious scrutiny. Facebook I think is all about facilitating real-world connections. And so we wanted to make it easy if you came across a piece of content that you found was bullying you or harassing you in any way. To take that piece of content and report it to Facebook as well as share it with somebody in your life: a trusted friend, a parent, a teacher, a principal. Somebody who can help you learn how to deal with the situation and handle that. You might not be able to change the behavior of the person who posted the content. But you can definitely get support, and learn how to deal with it yourself. So you can feel good about yourself, feel good about your use of the site. Your family and friends are literally always there on Facebook, so they're seeing the best of what's going on in your life, but they're also seeing some times when you might need some help. And from a safety perspective, we are uniquely positioned in that way to have this sort of community watching over you at all times. And you know, there's no question that the social issues and the interactions with other students. That, you know, created so much anguish in my life, when I was in eighth grade are the same issues that they're facing today in another, different environment. How can we use Facebook to overcome those challenges that they always face around social issues ? When people use their real name, and surround themselves by their real world friends and family, they're much more likely to conduct themselves on Facebook as they do in their everyday lives. So this concept is what gives us a really authentic environment, but also what gives us a very safe environment.
Be creative: The best ad
Be motivated: Keep your dream
I have a friend named Monty Roberts who owns a horse ranch in San Ysidro. He has let me use his house to put on fund-raising events to raise money for youth at risk programs.
The last time I was there he introduced me by saying, "I want to tell you why I let Jack use my horse. It all goes back to a story about a young man who was the son of an itinerant horse trainer who would go from stable to stable, race track to race track, farm to farm and ranch to ranch, training horses. As a result, the boy’s high school career was continually interrupted. When he was a senior, he was asked to write a paper about what he wanted to be and do when he grew up."
"That night he wrote a seven-page paper describing his goal of someday owning a horse ranch. He wrote about his dream in great detail and he even drew a diagram of a 200-acre ranch, showing the location of all the buildings, the stables and the track. Then he drew a detailed floor plan for a 4,000-square-foot house that would sit on a 200-acre dream ranch."
"He put a great deal of his heart into the project and the next day he handed it in to his teacher. Two days later he received his paper back. On the front page was a large red F with a note that read, "See me after class."
"The boy with the dream went to see the teacher after class and asked, "Why did I receive an F?"
"The teacher said, "This is an unrealistic dream for a young boy like you. You have no money. You come from an itinerant family. You have no resources. Owning a horse ranch requires a lot of money. You have to buy the land. You have to pay for the original breeding stock and later you’ll have to pay large stud fees. There’s no way you could ever do it." Then the teacher added, "If you will rewrite this paper with a more realistic goal, I will reconsider your grade."
"The boy went home and thought about it long and hard. He asked his father what he should do. His father said, "Look, son, you have to make up your own mind on this. However, I think it is a very important decision for you." "Finally, after sitting with it for a week, the boy turned in the same paper, making no changes at all."
He stated, "You can keep the F and I’ll keep my dream."
Monty then turned to the assembled group and said, "I tell you this story because you are sitting in my 4,000-square-foot house in the middle of my 200-acre horse ranch. I still have that school paper framed over the fireplace." He added, "The best part of the story is that two summers ago that same schoolteacher brought 30 kids to camp out on my ranch for a week." When the teacher was leaving, he said, "Look, Monty, I can tell you this now. When I was your teacher, I was something of a dream stealer. During those years I stole a lot of kids’ dreams. Fortunately you had enough gumption not to give up on yours."
"Don’t let anyone steal your dreams. Follow your heart, no matter what."
