YouTube & Beatbullying join forces with new channel

YouTube has launched a new channel to encourage young people to denounce the intimidation. Children & Young People can post their own videos and messages.  Channels are YouTube members (Beatbullying in this case) who upload videos. You can subscribe and get new videos delivered to you as they arrive.

The Beatbullying Channel is not that easy to find (umm), which means that children who don’t know how to find it are likely to use the search feature. The problem with this is that it throws up lots of less useful videos, some of which are feature bullies. This needs greater visibility, and seems a bit of a missed opportunity.

The videos feature celebrities speaking out against bullying.

The channel can be found HERE.

Rather more useful for young children is the CBBC anti-bullying site.
