In a bid to empower parents help their child navigate safely on Facebook, the social networking giant on Tuesday launched a Parent’s Portal in collaboration with parents, teenagers and safety experts around the world with their [Facebook] goal to help foster conversations among parents and their children about staying safe online.

Facebook recently updated its Safety Centre and Bullying Prevention Hub and has now introduced Parent’s Portal, which provides parent specific advice as part of the Safety Centre.

Parent’s Portal includes guides for parents about how Facebook works, tips for talking with kids about staying safe online and resources from experts around the world.

“With the new Safety Centre and Parent’s Portal, we worked with safety experts and local partners to develop content that resonates with our community,” said Ankhi Das, the social media site’s Public Policy Director South and Central Asia.

The portal includes step-by-step videos and is available in over 55 languages around the world.

“We hope that you find these resources useful and that Facebook helps you and your children connect to the people and things that matter to you most,” Antigone Davis, Head of Global Safety at Facebook writes in blog post.
