Facebook, Time Warner launch anti-bullying app

Facebook and Time Warner are launching an app designed to help prevent bullying among children and young adults.

The Facebook app, which launched on Monday, is part of a broader partnership the two companies formed earlier this summer. The partnership calls for Facebook, which has more than 750 million users, and Time Warner Inc. to use their clout to raise awareness about bullying and encourage kids and adults to stop it.

The app is called "Stop Bullying: Speak Up." It offers resources on how to prevent and stop bullying on and off Facebook. It also asks children and adults to take an online pledge to speak up if they witness bullying.
