Mother worries about cyber-bullying on Formspring- ABC Melbourne

Sometime ago  we alerted you to this very site, www.Formspring.me. It is a site that allows members to ask anonymous questions.  You can imagine how it could be used to bully, and harrass.  It is currently very popular amongst the Year 8 to 9 age group.  The article we wrote has now been placed under the Social Media tab on our site for your further interest.

On Jon Faine’s Morning Show on radio station 774 a Mum rang to talk about her daughter’s experience with this site.  You can hear it if you click on the link below
