The world's largest online social network Facebook and the National PTA are partnering to promote Internet safety information to their respective audiences.
Facebook and the PTA will team up to educate kids, parents and teachers about responsible and safe Internet use.
As part of the agreement, both the PTA and Facebook will reach families, regardless of income or race and providing them with tools and resources to keep them digitally smart on-line.
Palo Alto, California-based Facebook and the PTA will consult with many child safety, education and technology experts to collect, build and maintain a comprehensive set of multi-media education resources for this initiative.
The PTA and Facebook will work together to build a program to provide information and news to encourage citizenship online, reduce cyberbullying and advance Internet safety and security.
"Nothing is more important to us than the safety and well being of the people, especially the many teenagers, who use Facebook," said Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer of Facebook.
The PTA will reach out to the 24,000 local parent teacher associations across the country with a goal of reaching every American public school.
Facebook will raise awareness of the resources among the hundreds of millions of parents, teachers and children using its service through an in-kind Facebook commitment equivalent to $1 million and promotion on other parts of the site, including the safety center, said a statement.
