Close to 190,000 Facebook followers already trust Facecrooks as a valuable educational resource, and thousands of people turn to Facecrooks for the latest information on social media scams, viruses and privacy issues every day.

'Social Media Survival' will focus on the following key safety topics shown below:

  • Scams & Spam             
  • Identity Theft
  • Cyber Bullying
  • Malware & Viruses
  • Privacy

This web series will expose numerous dangers and pitfalls and will show users how they can best protect themselves and their loved ones from these threats.  The theme of the cyberbullying campaign is:  "Stand Up, Stand Out, Stand In." 

  • Stand Up – For Yourself
  • Stand Out – Express Your Individuality
  • Stand In – For Others

Facecrooks plans to collaborate with high school theater departments to tackle a serious social media issue in an engaging, entertaining and thought provoking manner. 

Tim Senft, Facecrook's Founder stated, "Facebook has over 1 billion active users, and this creates a huge attraction for hackers, scammers and other cyber criminals. Just being there makes you a target. Our information helps people of all ages have a safer social media experience. The scams we warn against can have devastating and real world consequences, including financial loss, emotional turmoil or a malware laden computer system."

Now Facecrooks is asking for your support. Their grassroots effort has literally helped thousands of people avoid potential social media pitfalls, and increased support for Facecrooks.com means more in-depth articles, video tutorials and the ability to positively impact a large number of people.
